Okay, go ahead. You can start. Okay. Miss Miller. Daniel Rahim on one second. I don't see your screen anymore. Okay, let me sort that out for right now.

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

See it now? Yeah, you're good now.

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

Let me put this on full screen

00:01:05 --> 00:01:07

okay, let's just leave it like that for now there.

00:01:08 --> 00:01:43

Okay Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala extrafill in the UAE more saline Nabina Muhammad Ali he have total solar thermal Tasleem and buried brothers and sisters Salam aleikum Warahmatullah wabarakatuh and welcome to our continuing series or sessions of the ultimate believer. So let's just jump right into it. Of course, like every session we we have a lot to cover, so we're going to try to do our best to cover as much as we can for today.

00:01:44 --> 00:02:37

So, quick recap of what we've been talking about in this surah and especially the previous am so we pause that a number 71 which is right here at the top of your screen. This am concluded a conversation about how we repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala what are the rules that we follow? What are the things that you need to do? And you need to say, in order for you to have an acceptable Dora, especially when you're making Toba? So we have defined what Toba is, when we discussed the different types of Toba in the Koran. So there are three types of Toba. One of them is called Toba, number two Toba and number three metta and we've gone through each of them in the previous session.

00:02:37 --> 00:03:19

So you're welcome to take a look at that. For more detailed discussion. I'm just going to translate these three for you. Toba is the bare minimum type of tilba. That's basically every sin that you and I commit, we immediately follow that up with a phrase or a quick adore or remorse or regret. So we'll say something like stuffing Allah and then we stop or with the Belemnite shaytani R rajim. Allah forgive and you're done. And usually told is linked to minor sins. And since that, you know, that are usually done accidentally, you know, you may have said something we may have done something and you didn't think it through just kind of blurted out, Toby's used in cases like that. And the

00:03:19 --> 00:04:08

thing that's important about tob is that, although it's the bare minimum, Allah guarantees that he will forgive Toad, no matter how minuscule it is, as long as you're sincere. And this is of course, based on a surah of the Quran, offering them we'll call Bailey tobe. So Allah will forgive a sin, and He will, in turn, welcome or or receive your tob of offering them we'll call Billy Toby Shahidullah equality, the toll and of course, Allah subhanaw taala. This punishment is very severe and lengthy. So that's the first one. The second one is Toba. That's the one that were more common that we use more often. tilba is Tober but it has an extra an extra ingredient to it. And Allah

00:04:08 --> 00:04:54

mentions this in another surah Allah subhanaw taala says, You'll have anything to eat Allah He told the 10 or so her or people of iman make Toba to Allah but make sure that your Toba is not so her. Not so her is sincerity. Like make sure that if you're going to do a Toba and it's just going to be one time and you know you really need to get over this hump. You really want to address what that problem is Tobor some people are able to just say one or make one Toba to Allah repent to him just once, and that's life changing. And it's kind of like their own epiphany. They realize life has got to change. I've got to stop doing what I'm doing, and call us. They make the sincere Toba and Toba.

00:04:54 --> 00:05:00

The difference between that and tob is like you really stop everything that you're doing, and you just stop

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

making dua tob, it's just on the spot. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing in will do or nothing will do prayer or not in pretty distant matter, just wherever you are just like a stock that Allah, I was eliminated or a job you're just making tob everywhere you go tell that you pause, you sit, and you make that one sincere Dora. And for a lot of people who do this kind of thing, who do this kind of DeWanna, where they really think through the mistake, and they sit down and they take the time to unload to Allah. That's called tilba tendinosis. The third one is what's mentioned in this area. So if you look at the top of your screen, this word is what we spent some time with last

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


00:05:40 --> 00:05:55

And this is called metabo. metabo is Toba and tob but the extra that that differentiates metabo from all the other types of Toba is the previous I remember, we looked through this

00:05:56 --> 00:06:33

and that as long as the believer goes through these three stages, tab, what manner we're amela Manansala has three things you must do. First is we mentioned you make Toba, we just very quickly linguistically, we mentioned that Toba is to physically change your circumstance or your state, it's not enough for you to just say a stock for Allah. And then you know, everything that caused and facilitated the sin to begin with is still there. The setup is still there, the atmosphere is still there. And one of the things that we reminded you last week with is that

00:06:34 --> 00:07:21

you try to avoid putting your iman in situations where it will be tested, you try to avoid that. So the same idea the same approach with Toba is that you try your very best to avoid being in places where you'll make a mistake or you'll do something wrong. So you try to ease the the path of Toba, you try to ease it as much as you can, and limit as many of the mistakes that cause you to be in Toba as you can. But nevertheless, we all make mistakes. So the first step towards seeking Allah's forgiveness is you've got to do something physically with the situation that you're in. And especially those things that are causing you to fall into that sin. Number two, what M and we

00:07:21 --> 00:08:04

mentioned M and A here is to renew your belief, m&s also remorse and regret. So you make a promise to yourself and of course to Allah is that I'm not going to do this anymore. Like I'm done with this sin. And now, this is a fresh start for me. I've thought it through. It's happened so many times. Now I'm done with that. So that's m&a. And then the third one we talked about was the righteous deeds. And remember, we said righteous deeds. It's not just about performing the deed. We looked through in in detail the word I'm alone, and the word Solly Han. And we looked at their two meanings. So the students that were with us last week, if you weren't here, the video is online. We

00:08:04 --> 00:08:53

spent some time defining these two terms, why Allah uses our amela. And every time Allah uses our emila to describe the deed, Allah then tells us it has to be solidly here. So this is why you see a versus will Latina M and o why middle Saudi had a Latina ermine Anwar middle Saudi had in the Latina, Ermanno army or solid head, it's always linked these two words. And we explained what solid was solid is that you're constantly working on yourself. Solid is that you're never never satisfied with where you are, you always see your mistakes, even though the rest of the world doesn't see your mistakes. You see it in yourself, you know what's going on in your heart in your life. And you know,

00:08:53 --> 00:09:45

you need to change some habits. Even if the world, your friends, your family, your relatives, if none of them call out your mistake, or they get too used to it. And then this is the worst part about committing sins. This is the worst part of it. The worst part is that you're committing a sin, but your surrounding is accustomed to or they're used to that kind of sin. So for example, like swearing, so somebody could be like, you can be part of a culture where it's very normal for people to swear to use bad words to curse. But that's not your habit. That's not your personality. You don't do that. But because you're surrounded with the people who curse all the time. There may be

00:09:46 --> 00:10:00

moments where a certain word or a curse word may pop out of your mouth. And you say it and you realize, man, I'm not used to doing it. I'm not used to cursing this way. And the dilemma is that sin

00:10:00 --> 00:10:44

As everybody around you is accustomed to using those kinds of words, nobody will correct you. That's why it is so important. That's why Allah says in the poor M Kuno. Meyer sadiya. Tiene de amongst people that are honest, that are truthful, what that means is, people are always going to be dead honest with you, even if they're making the mistake, but you don't. And one day you do they tell you about it. They'll tell you things like, Dude, you don't talk that way, like I talked that way, but you don't. So don't don't copy my bad habits, because that's not that's not good. I'm trying to work on it. That's Kulu mouse study of pain. So sometimes it's just being around good people is enough of

00:10:44 --> 00:11:33

a Darwin a call for you to better yourself. So I'm well I mean, I'm on solid health. You're always working on you. And if you don't realize or can't see your mistakes, you're around people that can help to point out some of those errors and mistakes, okay, but we learn so here's what metabo is, that will kill you, but did Allah who say to him personally, these are the people that Allah will take all of their bad deeds that they've done their entire life, but because they made a sincere Toba to Allah, Allah will take all of those bad deeds and switch them to good deeds. One of the examples that we used was a woman that did not wear her hijab or a brother that did not pray for

00:11:33 --> 00:12:18

several years, she hasn't had a hijab on for 1020 30 years of her life, the brother hasn't prayed a single raka for 10 years of his life. Now both of them want to start practicing Islam. It is from shaitan. When you tell yourself, you're not good enough for Allah, that's from Shaytaan. That's one of the traps of shaytaan is that he makes you feel like you're worthless. So don't even try. Don't even bother putting in the effort. Because look at you. Look how messed up you are. Look at how much you've done. You've missed so many prayers, you've never appreciated the hijab. Now you want to become a super Muslim all in one night. Don't waste your time. That's all from Shaytaan. So you make

00:12:18 --> 00:13:08

this promise that today, you start to change some of those habits because of your sincerity. Listen to the bonus and the gift that Allah gives us. It's absolutely incredible, Subhan Allah, Allah says, not only will I forgive you, and accept your Toba, but I'm also going to take all the years that you didn't wear hijab and switch them as though you were wearing hijab, your entire life. All those years, you didn't pray, because you're sincere. I'm going to switch all of those years into years that you've been praying. And some of the scholars they say, it's not just the font prayers, it's all the prayers, Allah of His mercy will switch those prayers that are missing with not just the

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

funnelled prayers, but also the Sunnah, prayers and the Nephele prayers. So Allah will reward you as though you've been waking up for tahajjud. Every night, you've prayed all of your sadness, all because you sincerely turned your life around. So this area is truly truly one of the most hopeful and promising beautiful areas of the entire Koran. Every single one of us should be reminded of verse number 70, in the Surah, every single day of our lives, every time you feel down and depressed, and you feel horrible, because you keep making the same mistake. So I'll give I'll share something really quickly. Two years ago, when I was in Medina, I met a student that we became

00:13:53 --> 00:14:34

friends. He was a Saudi student. And he had this like, really, really bad habit, and he would talk about it right, he would genuinely try to seek some advice. And he would talk about how he would fall into this habit. I don't want to mention what it is. But the point is, it's sinful it was haram and he kept falling into this habit and it was uncontrollable. So he used to ask for different pieces of advice, like, What can I say? Is there something I can do? Can I hang out with you guys instead? And subhanAllah after some time, it was about maybe three, four months, he started to get accustomed to being in good company. And he started to really focus and work on overcoming this

00:14:34 --> 00:15:00

mistake. And subhanAllah just when that was happening and his life started to turn around and you could see that he was genuinely trying, but only Allah knows. But it looked like he was putting forth the effort and we were all like happy for him. We were encouraging him. That brother one night, going to the masjid for Salah, got into a car accident died on the spot. So Subhana

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

But don't take this opportunity to make Toba for granted, because you just don't know what state you'll be in when the angel of death comes to you. So look at how Allah prepared this brother. For the years, he's struggling with this one sin, this one barrier between him and Allah. And then eventually because of his sincere to his willingness to keep working at it and to keep trying, Allah turned his life around. Now he's starting to do things better, but he doesn't know or you cannot realize that Allah was prepping himself for death. But Allah prepped him with the best way possible, giving him the optimism and the strength to overcome these sins, he started to do that. And insha

00:15:43 --> 00:16:09

Allah Huhtala we pray that Allah will forgive him, and have mercy on him in sha Allah. So felt will not kill you but did Allah who say to him has said it's truly remarkable, that's what metabo is, taking the bad deeds and switching them to good deeds. That's the bonus from Allah. What can Hola Hola, furo Rahima, which we've already talked about. This is the area that we pause that woman tab Awami la saleha, and whoever makes Tober

00:16:10 --> 00:16:59

why me Lasallian this area, remember, there's a word that's missing here, because it starts off like it's the same as the previous area. But one word is missing, which is m Anna. So you have woman tab one M and or emila Manansala M, it is not there. So why is it missing now in this area, but everything else is pretty much there. The moment they say that this area is the next step forward. So basically, Allah has already accepted your renewed belief like this fresh start and intention that you have, Allah has accepted it now. So now that you've got your iman together, now you can start doing the work, which is a real, real important point for Muslims out there to understand,

00:16:59 --> 00:17:48

think about how Muslims, when they live a bad life when they do a lot of wrong and they want to change that. Think about how they do that. Sometimes the routine for the most part is the moment somebody comes to that realization, the first thing they do to turn their life around, is they just start practicing. They jump right into it, get to the masjid, go for Hajj, go for a morale report, and they jump right into all the rituals and routine. And as a result, they've convinced themselves that I've changed. This is the path I should be on. There's one major ingredient missing in all of that. And that is they did not focus or concentrate on their belief with Allah. In Arabic, we call

00:17:48 --> 00:18:10

this half pita or toe heat. They didn't go back and learn who Allah is. They didn't study His names and his attributes. They didn't spend time learning about what Iman is how Iman works. You don't most of average layman, Muslims don't understand this whole idea, this concept of Eman,

00:18:11 --> 00:18:36

raising, and then declining, raising and then declining. It's constantly fluctuating. It's never permanent, it's never stable. And many Muslims don't understand how that works, when they're at their lowest and when they're at their highest. And what they need to do in order to streamline to the best of their ability to keep some sense of consistency. That requires study

00:18:37 --> 00:19:19

that requires study brothers and sisters, like that's not something that you just figure it out. You have got to be in classes, you have got to study this team, you've got to sit and study the Sunnah. You got to listen and study the CRO of the Prophet early. So to sum you've got to study at least the basic fundamentals of this religion, so that you understand who it is that you're doing it for, not for yourself, you're doing this for Allah subhanho wa taala, you've got to figure out how to make that connection with him. And the best way to do that is through him. That is why whenever you hear about courses, whenever you hear about classes, and you have the time, the effort is there. But the

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

laziness and excuses when you're busy with other things, all of that come in the way you have got to figure out ways to fight that and make the time for Allah is Dean so that you learn this religion. And the perfect example or a parable to that is just think about if the doctor gives you some bad news, right, you're sick, you need to come for treatment now. Right? You could be the busiest person in the world, but when you know your health is at risk, and you need to get treatment immediately. Do you find time to do that? Absolutely. If you don't find the time you make the time. You know you start canceling things you start with

00:20:00 --> 00:20:44

You see your work hours, you make the time to address your health, the same idea, the same focus has got to be for you. You've got to make time for this Dean. That's how Allah will give it to you is that you literally focus on this and you say to yourself, like I have to understand this, that this is my religion. This is the only way I'm gonna get to Allah's forgiveness and ultimately to Jana, I have to spend some time understanding why I learned this material and who I'm doing it for. So women tab men or why Mila Sol Sol men and that was done because the believer has gone through that. Well, I mean, Losada in the Huya Tubu eel Allah He metabo. So that's where this word comes. I basically

00:20:44 --> 00:21:05

what Allah is saying here is that on the Day of Judgment, they will come with a case of Toba. That is a strong case. In other words, they brought the strongest case or evidence that they've been trying in the court of ALLAH SubhanA wa, tada.

00:21:06 --> 00:21:54

Allah is the judge. Now you gotta come in front of Allah to prove your case. Our case is our life. So if to stand in front of the judge, and say, Oh Allah, this is what I've been doing my entire life. This is what I put did for you, Oh Allah, I learned for you. I struggled for you. I earn for you, I spent for you. I lived for you, oh Allah. If Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with the way that we lift. And the case that we bring to him, then forgiveness and Allah's Jana is given to us in sha Allah. This case that you bring to Allah is called metabo. And it's the strongest piece of evidence to prove that you were a good person, a good believer in front of Allah. It's called

00:21:54 --> 00:22:49

metabo. So that's why the area says, fit into who you are to Illa. So the person who went through these guidelines in this area and the previous one, they have made a Toba to Allah that is metabo. So this is the best place to be. The best place to be is metabo. And I pray that we are all there and we remain there in sha Allah Who Thailand the next day. Well, Athena yesh, Dominus Zoar. What is the Maru beloved Maru Kirana. They are those who do not bear false witness. And when they come across falsehood, they pass it by with dignity. So there's a lot to hatch out here. Let me just bring the handout in front of you guys. So hopefully you guys can see that right. So this is the

00:22:49 --> 00:22:53

handout and we've done this part of the verse.

00:22:54 --> 00:22:55

Now we're here.

00:22:57 --> 00:23:40

Okay, this is the part of the verse that we're, well, Latina, Elijah doulas, Zoar. Let's start an S for those who don't bear witness to a zoo or what is a zoo? Koalas zoar feral org actions that are resumed? What exactly is it? So there are the two meanings. The first meaning that the scholars of Tafseer mentioned to us is a zoo, is that they don't do not give evidence. So somebody may make a claim, but they have nothing to back it up with that's called cobblers zoo, you're just speaking in thin air. Like you're just making this stuff up. But there's no way to validate or prove what it is that you're saying. So in the courts, or even in the court of Allah, they have a case, but there's

00:23:40 --> 00:23:56

nothing to backup their case. Number two, they have no intention to witness anything which is false evil or wicked as spectators. So we're going to talk about this a little. All right. So the word that we're focusing on is this word right here as zoar

00:23:57 --> 00:24:56

this particular word, how do you practice this? Like how do you implement the discipline of when you hear Zora zoar so you take those two meanings, and scholars have other additional details to a zoo is anything that is false. That is dishonest. That is a waste of time, there's all benefit to it. So lying, backbiting, gossip, and just even a thorough thoroughness Prophet I resort to certain calls him like people that just talk too much. All of that falls on on hola Zorro or the action of a zoo. This area though, doesn't focus on people that speak or verbalize zoar this area is focused on witnessing visually witnessing and looking at a zoo. But on the outer like the apparent meaning of

00:24:56 --> 00:25:00

this a it seems like you're sitting there watching it but

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

At the ASHA doon also entails hearing it, because they can bear witness that if they didn't see it, they heard it. So it's either or both seeing and hearing can be counted as witnessing. So these people, these believers, when they heard or saw Zora they Maru Billahi Maru Kirana. So you now know what Zorya is, it's everything that's dishonest. It's a waste of time, there's no benefit to it. And my goodness, let me tell you,

00:25:40 --> 00:26:22

every home should have this area painted on the wall, every single home, because that's where most of the backbiting the lying, the gossip happens, it happens in the privacy of our homes. Think about some of those family gatherings. Think about where you are, especially in the summertime, when people spend a lot of time in their balcony and a front yard and you're just chit chat until fudgier or something just about what this person is doing what that person is doing and just busy with the affairs of everyone else. You know, there was a great scholar by the name of his help out of Hema hula. He was amongst the tabby also the third generation, he was really originally from Iraq. And

00:26:22 --> 00:26:53

one day is how he was a great scholar. And he was well respected throughout the world at that time. And I've always had was one day walking in the middle of the marketplace. And people were shocked. They couldn't believe that a scholar of that caliber was just walking around in a marketplace. And so they all crowded around him. And they started to ask him questions. One of the questions they asked is how is what are the things that

00:26:54 --> 00:27:43

make us that make our dua not acceptable to Allah? What are the things that stop our door us from being accepted. So I've always have paused and he mentioned 10, different things. Inshallah, maybe next week, we will talk about those 10 things. But for now, he mentioned that your door is are not accepted, because you have busy yourself with 10, different things. One of those things that he mentioned, so I won't go through all of them right now, one of those things, is that the people have spent their nights in gossip, and T lower Paul saying this and saying that, and have forgotten about themselves. So they were too busy with everybody else's affairs. And they forgot themselves. Let me

00:27:43 --> 00:28:26

tell you, every family has one of those persons, the gossip queen or the gossip King, everyone has, they all have somebody that this is the test you have to deal with. Because not only is that person close to you, their family, that could be an extended relative cousin, whatever the case is. But the point is, they're within your circle, they're in your family circle. So it's a real test. Because if they have if you happen to be around them, then these conversations get brought up, then they'll start to mention names of different people, or they'll just make up stuff, or what are all kinds of just wasteful and useless talk. All of that is absorbed. So the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam

00:28:26 --> 00:28:33

warned us about a zoo, because it's the gateway to all the other problems in our life.

00:28:34 --> 00:29:15

If somebody spends a lot of time talking about things that are not beneficial, the next step after that is the end up doing the things that are not beneficial. So it goes from words. And then if it's not stopped, or it's not under control, then it leads to some kind of action. And if the action itself begins to manifest, where the person is spending most of their time just doing crazy nonsense things of no use. And if they don't get control over that, then the third step happens. You know what the third step is? Then they start passing on that culture of azul, to others, it becomes normalized.

00:29:16 --> 00:29:57

It just becomes normal. People get used to it. You know, Malcolm X once said that, there's there will come a time. And he was referring to the news media back then in the 60s, and said that the news media is very clever at turning a lie into a truth. And the way that they do that is they constantly repeat the lie over and over and over. So at first people will deny people make a problem out of it and say, No, that's not true. That's not who we are. But if the media continues to

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

repeat that narrative,

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

and they become so repetitive. Gradually, what the mind of the listeners tend to do is they start to look for that lie into what it's referring to. So if it's referring to people, they start looking for that lie in the people and convinced themselves, they found it. Because why it's on the news every day, the news outlets are supposed to be reputable, honest, they're supposed to give you the truth. So there's a lot of people that would trust that outlet for information. So they don't have to go and talk about the people that are being lied upon. They'll just be like, Yeah, you know, what they are like that. You might you ever watch like some of those stand up comedies. So the guy who's

00:30:44 --> 00:31:29

doing the comedy, he'll pick like, a certain ethnicity amongst the crowd. So it'll talk about like Spanish people, Indian people, and he'll start making jokes about them. You know, the problem with that is, psychologically your mind, although it's getting a great laugh, can easily start to register what he's saying about Spanish and Indians and Somalis and blacks and whites, your mind your, your, the subconscious mind of yours starts to register. And gradually, if you listen to those jokes enough, you start saying to yourself, Oh, that is how these people are exactly what that comedian said. That is how they are. That's how they act. And so you immediately paint this picture.

00:31:29 --> 00:32:14

That was not honest, it was never honest, from the very beginning. You heard it so many times, you might as well believe in it. So Subhan, Allah, Hola, Zoar. It's really important. So this is one of the prime qualities of every battle Rockman they never bear witness to the statement or the words of a zoo. And they never bear witness or get comfortable. And watch and observe the actions that are despicable a zoo. Now listen to how they deal with this. Some of you may be wondering, so if I'm around in that circumstance, what do I do? Do I just start giving data and telling everybody? Hey, listen, everybody, just be quiet. Let's talk about Poron instead, no, listen to what the believer

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

does. What either Maduro whenever they pass below, Maru Kirana

00:32:23 --> 00:32:51

whenever they pass by this level of falsehood, whenever they pass by this stuff, they pass by the lies, the the awful conversations, the condescending comments, the backbiting, whenever they hear about the Monroe KERAMA. See these two words, students, let me just highlight it in the handout. Writer.

00:32:53 --> 00:32:54

Right here.

00:32:56 --> 00:32:57

Let's underline that.

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

They pass it by with dignity. Remember that?

00:33:06 --> 00:33:09

Remember that? They passed by with dignity.

00:33:11 --> 00:33:14

What does that mean? They pass by with dignity. What does that even mean?

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

Looks like this. Suppose you're at a restaurant. Right? Everybody's having a good time. But then that one person brings up a conversation. So you saw so and so see how they will look today. See how they were talking. See how they dressed. See how they were acting? Yeah, I don't like that guy. He's so annoying.

00:33:34 --> 00:33:36

So somebody kickstarts

00:33:37 --> 00:34:02

that conversation and then somebody else pops in? Yeah, you're right. I really don't like him. He's so annoying. And and then he or she adds to an end in addition to that you didn't know but listen, this is how they are as well I found this about him. Then the third and the fourth and that's the sort of the the ripple effect. You're sitting there now. And you know this is wrong.

00:34:03 --> 00:34:21

The real believer finds a way to remove themselves from that situation. And they do it in a way that is civilized and dignified. See the word Maru Tirana, Karim Karim. It's one of the last names

00:34:22 --> 00:35:00

Teddy they do it in a proper civilized well respected manner. You don't just get up from a situation when people are just talking nonsense I'm be like, Okay, guys, well, I'm going to leave here I want to talk about this. You guys have already picked out your your spots in Jahannam I'm going to leave Okay, so I'm already gonna He's gonna do that. You don't just like make condescending comments that everybody's this fallen off the path. But somehow you've you're a less you know, saved given gift. And you just happen to get up and Allah has saved you and everybody else is going to drown. That attitude is what Allah

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

is highlighting you can't do that. You can never ever make yourself more superior to others when especially when they're making a mistake, because you have no idea. I have no idea, the mistake that we might be subjected to tomorrow. Today, we might be obedient. We don't know if that's the case tomorrow.

00:35:19 --> 00:36:20

You know, there is a famous Imam, right here in Toronto. He studied in Saudi is very knowledgeable, became a great scholar, and very, very active in Dawa. But as time went on, something happened to him. And his theology transformed. And he went from being a well respected scholar to somebody that literally altered and changed Islam, to sort of, and personalized it in a way that was suitable for him and anybody who followed him, the key literally changed, and added a ton of different things that are not from the Dean, the 99% of the Ummah doesn't even do some of the things that he calls to. And because he lost a lot of support, and generated a lot of heat and criticism from the

00:36:20 --> 00:36:32

communities, he decided to go and open his own Islamic center. And that's where he's operating now. And I don't want to say where or who this is, but the point is, I remember seeing this shift,

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

flourishing and really

00:36:37 --> 00:37:23

disseminating knowledge and people were in tuned and they were guided by Him. Of course, by Allah's Will, I was one of them, who attend his lectures is to take notes, really admired his eloquence, his voice, his recitation, his Arabic, all of that, and Subhan Allah Now, Allah knows, but based on what we know, is authentic in our deen, it's almost as if the Islam and in this individual is now is now questionable. But we leave that with Allah, we all we can do is better, we can just advise to just help, we can just provide some guidance, and the rest is left with Allah. The point is, you don't go up to somebody like that start insulting them, putting them down Morrow KERAMA. It doesn't work for

00:37:23 --> 00:37:29

you just okay, you know what, I'm just gonna go somewhere else. This part of the A at the end.

00:37:30 --> 00:38:25

It's very, very, it's irritating. Because it's the one thing that most people don't do, when they're in an uncomfortable situation, to exit that situation and leave it in a civilized and respectful way, is rare, unfortunately, why? Because your patience is tested, you become irritable, you become annoyed. And those are the things that trigger frustration and anger. So that's why Allah highlights key ramen, students that we mentioned, the two fat has on the top of work, the two fat has entail that you have to be really firm. When you do this, you can't just be like lackadaisical and lazy, you got to be really focused, you got to keep your mind together to be able to do that. And you've

00:38:25 --> 00:38:42

got to think it through. Like we said earlier, you don't just get up and utter a few insults and then walk away. They call us know, try your very best to ensure that you don't offend anybody. Because here's the for those of us that are writing out here is the ultimate goal, why you do this,

00:38:43 --> 00:39:36

why we try to get out of these situations with a sense of dignity. Here's the purpose, the goal behind that. It's not just that you don't want to listen to it or be around it. The goal behind leaving situations like this, is you're trying to call them back to the sunnah to a lestine. You're trying to get them back on track, leave off all of the stuff. So this case here, the fact that you're walking away with a sense of dignity, and respect, that in itself could be a call to them. That you know what, he just got up and he just left. I mean, he was polite about it, but it makes sense. Maybe it might trigger some thought in the people that are involved, it might trigger them to

00:39:36 --> 00:39:42

rethink and be like quinoa is right. At least he had the guts to get up. Maybe we should too.

00:39:43 --> 00:39:59

I think a perfect example of something like that is with fit around. We all know who fit around was mozzarella, he said when he confronted fit around. What's the first thing that Allah told him to do? The first thing Allah instructed me

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

Musa alayhis salam to do before before he says you know

00:40:06 --> 00:40:24

you fit around release all the people of Benny Surah eel let them go the torture and you claiming that your God all of this got to stop before all of this is what Allah tells him to do. Fell hula hoops hola Lena La La Jolla to the Kuru Oh Yaksha

00:40:25 --> 00:40:34

say to them Holan Lena say to them words that are soft and gentle you know layin, take a look at this mousepad

00:40:35 --> 00:41:27

laying is something that is soft and you can easily without effort, you can change its shape its structure, it's easily you can squeeze it, you can do anything you want. There's no struggle, even a baby could take this mousepad and do all sorts of things with it. That's called Lena. Allah is telling Musa alayhis salam, when you meet the tyrant of the world at that time, the person that is arguably the worst human being ever created. The person who claimed he was God, the person who tortured people, hundreds and 1000s of them as slaves who killed and murdered babies, and mothers and children. And he also wants to take the life of Musa alayhis salam, because of an incident that

00:41:27 --> 00:41:47

happened right? He also wants Musa Elisa. And then in addition to that he has he has this additional level of hatred for Musa because Musa is the first person that had the strength to challenge him challenge his authority. So you have all these things around your own. Still, Allah tells Musa alayhis salam Be nice to him.

00:41:48 --> 00:42:37

Because the goal, shouting and cursing and arguing, it goes nowhere. There is no outcome to that except more hatred, more problems, more arguing more confrontation. And if if it continues to escalate, who knows where it ends, there is no benefit to it. That is all about self control. So when Musa alayhis salam is given these instructions, Allah tells him exactly how to do it. Hola, Lena Lena, you now know what that is? Why Allah Allahu Yetter that killed well Yaksha so that maybe perhaps he might sit there and think and reflect. And he might develop some sense of fear with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. Put them together. And then this whole area starts to come alive.

00:42:38 --> 00:42:45

Walking away with dignity and respect from people who are sitting and doing wrong.

00:42:47 --> 00:43:35

Refraining from insulting them and putting them down, in and of itself is a gateway to Allah subhanho wa Taala is mercy. And the way that that gate opens up is that if you control how you behave, so actions do speak louder than words. So, so really incredible, a lot easier said than done. That's the habit of the world today. That's the habit of people in general, is that when there's juicy gossip, lots of people like to get involved, the tongue is loose, all sorts of things start to happen. But the true believer of Allah, amongst those are very bad or Rockman. They're always careful, conscious and paying attention. When they see these things are happening or they

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

hear it. The discomfort is so overwhelming. It's so overbearing, that they decide, You know what, I don't want to be around here no more, but they excused themselves politely and with the respect. That is a true believer of Allah subhanho wa taala. Musa alayhis salam is doing it with a worst human being, than imagine us. We should be able to do it. We just regular people around us.

00:44:01 --> 00:44:15

Okay. Last year, while Athena at the zoo Kira will be here to obey Him all. I love this a actually, the wording is so remarkable. There are those who when reminded

00:44:17 --> 00:44:20

there's the key role of the revelation of Allah.

00:44:22 --> 00:44:59

Do not turn a blind eye or a deaf ear to it. lumea Hebrew RLA * so now we're omiana Soma, where omiana will Latina either the Kunal so listen to the item, and those who are when remind it as Luquillo when they are reminded. You see this word? We all know this word from the Victrola the kid who has a shudder here. It's not either a zoo kill the kill. So the key rule means to remind

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

them, the theater with the shredder also means to remind them. So what's the difference between the two? If you put, if you'd have no shredder on top of the verb zucchero, then it means just to remind them and remind them as best as you can.

00:45:18 --> 00:46:06

But when the shutdown is there, like the area, Allah is saying, make sure you stick to and remind like, don't walk away, make sure you make a point and remind them Who is Allah referring to? Anybody? It says, Look hero. So Allah is telling us make sure you make this a part of your life that you will remind whether it's your family, friends, relatives, people and just to remind, and what do you what kind of reminders do you give them you don't sit there and start debating and arguing and see who's who's like more smart. Who can shut down the other person. That's not the goal of Dara. Lots of unfortunately, there's lots of lots of students out there you can see a ton of YouTube

00:46:06 --> 00:46:19

videos as well of people going to like parks, setting up tables in downtown and on the streets, just debating with people, right? I mean, if if that's something you want to do, that's your thing. Find me personally,

00:46:20 --> 00:46:29

as we look at the Sunnah, you will never find a single narration of the prophet Ali Saad was arguing Islam with anybody.

00:46:30 --> 00:46:41

Like he never started shouting to people and debating them and playing tennis with a yet and had it's just back and forth, back and forth. The Prophet sallallaahu Salam never did that.

00:46:42 --> 00:47:14

And that's why many of our alumni tells us that Dawa insulted our to do that, because that was the whole point of projecting this message. The whole point of it is to call people to peace. So if you start off calling, by screaming and yelling, and arguing and confrontation, and you've missed the whole point of the Dawa itself, you need to go back and reassess, and change that approach. So either zucchero, Allah wants us to when we remind remind the area to be him

00:47:15 --> 00:47:18

remind with the revelation of their master,

00:47:19 --> 00:47:35

yet, is not just the aid of the poor man. And yet here is all of the miracles and signs of Allah's existence. So in the comments, I want to ask you guys telling me

00:47:36 --> 00:47:52

any sort of area, or indication that proves Allah exists, tell me something that you see or know about in life, that proves Allah, Israel that he exists.

00:47:53 --> 00:48:40

So for me, the first thing that comes to mind is the complexity in Allah's creation, how complex we are as humans, I mean, I spend time every now and then just studying a little bit about the body and its functionality and all of the different systems and organs and things like that. It's SubhanAllah. No wonder doctors are doctors, because you go to school for like a decade, just studying the body. And still, you know, you're just scratching the surface of just how complex our bodies are, the things that it needs, it's so precise in order to remain healthy. And if you want to lose weight, just think about the process you have to go through to lose and burn fat. Like it's not

00:48:40 --> 00:49:23

just exercise, you've got to watch your energy, you've got to watch your intake, you've got to decide which ingredients to use, which not to use, like you've got to go through this rigorous and detailed program to achieve one thing, and then then settle. Now you want to be able to continue to maintain a certain lifestyle that keeps your body functioning properly, then when one thing goes wrong, it affects 20 other things in the body. Like it's just absolutely complex. It's so meticulous in every single cell, an atom in our body has a function that we can't live without. So that's the first thing that comes to my mind. And the second thing that is I really truly believe is a huge

00:49:23 --> 00:49:59

sign of Allah subhanaw taala is existence is the animal kingdom, especially in the oceans, animal life and sea creatures. You know, I watch a lot of these animal documentaries and there was a documentary about deep sea diving. So the Mariana Trench, some divers went down the center vessel down, but even like Japan, a few scientists went down in a specially designed vessel, and they went right down to the bottom and touch the deepest part of the entire world, the Mariana Trench, and the goal behind that was to explore so

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

They wanted to see if there was a wildlife living under that ocean with that amount of pressure, how could anything survive. So they started sending these sea vessels down. And they waited, they would tie like it was really cool to watch, actually, that they started tying bait and foods and dead fish and other things that can attract some sea creatures and they waited. And what they saw literally blew their mind, they started to see animal life smaller than our heads smaller than our pinky finger, that are just swimming around in the hundreds and the 1000s living life. Remember, the pressure is unbelievably unbearable, the temperature is extremely, extremely freezing cold, there is

00:50:48 --> 00:51:33

zero sunlight at that depth of the ocean zero, they're living in pitch darkness. And their bodies are thinner and Trent's more transparent than a piece of paper. Like if you were to put a strand of hair beside one of these creatures, just to kind of have an idea of the thickness of their skin, maybe the thickness of their skin, gives them the muscle and the ability to uphold and live under that type of environment. And you would see that strand of hair is thicker than the skin or the outer layer of some of these creatures living at the bottom of the ocean. Why would Allah do that?

00:51:35 --> 00:52:08

Why? If it was up to us, we would probably want to see or expect to see creatures with massive, you know, muscles and the thinnest skin or outer layers of their body just protecting them, and concealing or at least repelling some of that pressure, but it was actually the complete opposite. Why would Allah do that? Why is it that that's the type of creatures living under those conditions. It's a sign for us, Allah subhanaw taala can do whatever he wants, and make the impossible work.

00:52:09 --> 00:52:30

So I'm going to pause there because the rest of these eight, there's a lot to to unfold, but in sha Allah, because we're having an online session today. We'll pause here for now and inshallah next week, we will finish this a in sha Allah. Take the next verse, and

00:52:31 --> 00:53:11

maybe two more verses and that's it. So, next week is going to be a heavy session Inshallah, we're going to take about at least three or four verses, and then that will of course lead us into the final session where we will complete this surah and then I have a couple of I have a little bonus for all of you some bonus material that I think you will really appreciate in sha Allah Huhtala Okay, guys, so we'll pause here for today and shut low Tyler. I hope that all of you can, you are staying safe. The weather is actually pretty bad outside here in Toronto, at least. If you're in Australia or some warm country. I just I'm jealous. That's all I can say. But it shall I hope you're

00:53:11 --> 00:53:44

enjoying your time there. And all of us who live here and are amongst the store may Allah azza wa jal keep us safe and keep all of you safe. And hopefully insha Allah I hope that the conditions improve that we can meet once again at the Islamic Institute of Toronto. So next week in sha Allah Allah at 7pm We continue and here's where we will pause. May Allah azza wa jal bless all of you and may Allah subhanaw taala accept from us our efforts below. Okay guys, so take care until we meet again, was salam or aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh
