and my bad My dear brothers and sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
So, I recently attended a conference on this past Monday and Tuesday, and the conference was on like dealing with kids who are at risk of like violence and radicalization and problems that kids face in general. And I was a bit apprehensive in attending this conference because I was like, I don't know anyone that's attending this conference. Like literally, I will not know anyone. And this is my fear about like a week or two ago. And it was interesting that on Sunday, I was in Ottawa. And on my way back from Ottawa, there's two brothers on my flight. They clearly visibly Muslim. They weren't Goofy's, you know, one of them had to declare beads, and so on and so forth. And I said, I want to
go on, like, you guys are heading to Calgary. They're like, yeah. And I'm like, What are you guys going for? They're like, there's this conference that's happening. And you know, that's what we're going for. And I was like, Subhanallah, you know, let's find out that I knew I didn't want to be alone. And you know, here's the 72 brothers all the way from Ottawa. Now, the interesting story about one of the brothers was that he was like, maybe what, three or four years ago, I was at another conference, and he was my driver at that conference. So I got to know him a bit then and then the conference on Sunday. I saw him there as well. And then he just happened to be on my flight
as well. And I thought to myself, panela you know, in life, there's nothing that happens by coincidence. There's nothing that happens by coincidence, everything purely happens by the crocodile of Allah subhana wa Tada. And he knows what he's doing. And this is the story I originally wanted to start off with my started my Holocaust with how let's find out what's odd is in complete control, he knows what he's doing. But unless I know it's either sent a bigger idea, which was, you know, putting a lot of mclubbe over here. The second in the second Docker, the man was reciting from sortal anon, and I want to share with you the verse that he was reciting. So he said, I will be
leaving the stone obscene we're in the home of 30 100 ABI Allah Maha Allahu Allah Mathews Burwell. anata. scotoma Nora cotton in the Yamaha, Willa hubbardton, viola lomatium are the alto be nada? Yeah, this lfv kids have been moving. And with him are the keys of the unseen, none knows them, but he and he knows whatever there is in the land, and in the sea. Not a leaf falls, but he knows it. There's not a green in the darkness of the earth, nor anything fresh or dry. But it is written in a clear record. And this verse is directly speaking about others. panela and if you look into the Koran, you know, it's like, you know, 6000 odd verses in the Quran. The Imam could have recited any
of them in the Salah, but he chose to recite this verse, and it's just, you know, there's these constant signs of the color of Allah subhanaw taala and that Allah subhanaw taala is in control, you know, in all of our affairs. Now when it comes to powder, as you know, in the famous hadith of gibreel gibreel he taught the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the odd kind of a man and he said that to the kind of Eman are six things right and taught me a little bit that he when he gets he will go to be here also he will do mill after all, while he was shot, he that you know the the pillars of Eman are six there to believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala. They are to believe in the
prophets. They're to believe in the angels. They're to believe in the books they are to believe in the last day. And it is to believe in father, the God of it and the Battle of it. Meaning that as a Muslim, you will not have any faith until you believe in other and others will come to see it's not just believing in the destiny that Allah has, you know, created, but it is believing in much, much more than that. And that is you know, what a part of our faith entails. There's a famous quote by Abdullah Vasco de la Han Houma, where he says,
In the vomit or hate vermandois had Allah wa kasturba bill coddle. nakoda Zeebo who told him
that he says that other is you know, the the map or the system that Allah subhanaw taala has created, it is the the system of tawheed and whoever believes in the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But denies cada then has denied the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala and then he has denied the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and even Muhammad Allah, Allah, He used to say that whoever disbelieves in the puddle of Allah has disbelieved in the last panel water either and used to see a locodoco de la jolla that Qatar is the capability of Allah subhana wa Tada. So when you deny the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala It is as if you're denying the capability of Allah subhanho wa
Taala you're denying the capability of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now their belief in father was actually quite simple. You know, they used to say, call Lucia in because of Hatha Yoga cada hadik that you know everything is by the father of Allah subhanho wa Taala even the placing of you
Your hand on your cheek is a uniform on yourself. It's from the father of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So it was a very simplistic approach to Qatar and this is, you know the belief that one should have that Allah subhana wa tada has predestined everything that happens. And this is our belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now let's start off with the verse. Today we will only be completing one verse when he if you would do us the honors in sha Allah, just one verse, that's it
Love what we're going
to do dealing with dealing with people.
Transition yet to
be convinced, since this is a pillar that combines many of the religion and original conferences much fantastic. So the first thing we want to talk about over here is the very first part of the verse he says, a plan that meaning have your pain in this. So when it comes to, you know, knowledge as a science, you'll notice that there's different levels of certainty that a person can have, when it comes to knowledge, a person can have speculative knowledge, which is what we will call money, that is not 100% Sure, it could be true, it could not be true. And this will vary from in terms of levels of doubt. But then you have l malleotrain. Right, which is what knowledge is with itself,
knowledge is L which you feed to eliakim, which gives you certainty which gives you certainty. So he's saying over here that you have to have certainty in the color of Allah subhanaw taala you have to have, you know, certainty in the color of Allah subhana wa Tada. So this concept of God that Allah subhanaw taala addresses it many, many times in the Quran, and I want to share with you in just a few verses where Allah subhanaw taala talks about the general verses of God. The first one is insert a comma verse 49, Soto comma, verse 49, Allah subhana wa Tada. He says, in a coalition in kalapana, who will be called sola comer, verse 49. Indeed everything we have created in its pre
ordained predestined manner and matter. So nothing takes place in this world except that Allah subhana wa tada has predestinated except that Allah subhana wa tada has pre destined it. Then likewise in Surah, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, I love the hell out of her so well one day the god the Rafah, that Allah subhanaw taala is the one that created and fashioned and he is the one that proportioned and guided he is the one that proportions and guided so cut that over here means proportion meaning every gave everyone is preordained and predestined lot to or share predestined lot or share. So this is a general approach to gather in the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala
affirms God for himself here firms gathered for himself. Can we think of any idea or talk about other besides the hadith of gibreel?
Can we think about any Hadith that talks about other with the exception of the hadith of gibreel?
There's gonna be a long awkward silence.
Fantastic. Remind, tell me about the Hadeeth.
Can you do something about the sound?
If you just look into that, I think something's the bass might be really high.
If you want to ask for help.
Fantastic. Yeah. We're together to do any good, right? Not be able to do it. Right.
We're together to do,
it would not be able to do it.
It tasted fantastic. So this is heading number 19. In a moment, though, is 40 Hadith, where the prophets of Salaam told him about Saudi Allah one that he says Phantom, though and then omitted some other info Cubby, Shea in Libyan Pharaoh could be seen in the pockets of Allah hulak wylam. And it will summarize the Hadith that he says, look, have knowledge that if this whole almost Together Together to benefit you with somebody that would not be able to benefit with you so benefit you with anything except that Allah had written it for you. And know that if you were to gather together to harm me with something, they will not be able to harm me with anything except that Allah subhanaw
taala had written it against you, the pens have been lifted and the pages have dried, the pens have been lifted, and the pages have dried. So that's one ad that talks about other another ad that talks about cuddle, you guys know at least two of them for sure. There's two more that you definitely know. This is
of delivering the sort of your mind talks about the creation of the fetus of the baby in the belly of the mother, right so stages. And he says, when the current state of the angel and the lights for the and his life, his risk whether you'll be successful.
Hold on one second. Clayton Sharma Sorry about that.
Okay, so now do remember what we said about that portion portion of the head if you weren't in that class so it's not it's not law number is not actually a part of the head is not actually a part of the head if the lottery that the angels write down for things inshallah fair but that was good so in the hadith of Ibn Masuda de la Han Omar
Abdullah Massoud, and Allah knows best that this is from Abdullah Massoud that he the angels write down for things right, very good. So that's from the statements of the companions. So we said that the angels write down His life where he will die, Shockey on our side and will he be happy? Or you know, will he be miserable in this life? So that's not what I was referring to. But good attempt what other headings Do we know what other
think about an animal that it was famous in Arabia?
a camel, fantastic, what is the heading for the camel?
Your mom has told like January through your mom and your dad has told you this headache so many times? Yes, what is the hedis
have to occur.
So, you know, man came to the Messenger of Allah says 11 he's a gala. So Allah, you know, I left my camel outside, should I tie it and put my taco in Allah, or should I just leave it and put my taco then Allah and the processor told him that tight and put your tawakkol in Allah and tight and put your token in Allah and this is a proper understanding of God, that God does not mean that you don't make any effort at all, but rather the true understanding of God is that you take the ASVAB you take the means, and then you put your trust in Allah subhana wa Tada. And this is you will see is the great difference between the various sects in their belief in God, where one group said, You know
what, there is no power whatsoever everything is you know, upon us and another group that said, You know what, everything is covered, everything absolutely everything is covered, and we are forced to do the things that we do. So if Allah wants something, he'll make your force it to happen and you don't need to worry at all. And then the sooner we came in the middle of that, you know what we take the means and then we put our trust in Allah subhana wa Tada. But we'll get to that when we get there. We'll get to that when we get there. A very explicit Hadith where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says kulu Shea in Qatar had the actual case, that industry report inside Muslim
he says that the prophets are seldom said that everything is by either even once in capability. And once you know, intuition, once capability and once intuition, and this is inside a Muslim 2655 2655 support system clearly said, everything is by the color of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And everything is by the product of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now,
as I understand our belief in Qatar, it has four levels of belief, it has four levels of belief, and we believe that it is through these four levels of belief that if one was to understand each of these four levels, then you would have no problems in color at all, no problems in father at all. But before we get to these four levels, it's very important to understand a statement from the predecessors where they used to say, I looked at the rooster Allah, that other is the secret of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But that is the secret of Allah subhanho wa Taala. What does this statement actually mean? What the statement means is that no matter how perfectly you may understand other
there is an element of other that you will not understand. And that is where you need to submit to Allah subhanaw taala that is where you need to submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala and just accept it for what it is one of the greatest questions that you know, boggles the human mind. But we shouldn't get to that level of questioning is the Why did Allah subhana wa tada choose to guide this person and not guide that person? Right? Why did Allah subhanaw taala decide that at the end of the day, that decision is Allah subhana wa tada we will not truly understand it. But we submit to the fact that all this fine whatever chooses to guide and allow to miss guide whomever he pleases, right. So
it is the secret of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the point comes, where you cannot understand and fathom the knowledge and wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala and that is where you just submit and that is why the term Muslim is just about submitting to, you know what Allah subhanaw taala wants us to submit to wanting us to submit to so the first level of an email will be Milla Hill as an Emanuel b L. Miller. He actually so this to believe in the preceding knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala is to believe in the proceeding knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala as it can also mean ancient. But in this construct, I believe proceeding is is more appropriate because ancient means that it's just
old, right? It doesn't mean that it doesn't have a beginning. Right? It doesn't mean that it does not have a beginning was when we say you know, proceeding
Meaning that Allah subhanho wa Taala his knowledge has been with Allah subhanho wa Taala for eternity it has no beginning it has no end. So asili over here I know previously were translated as ancient. But for translation purposes over here, we'll translate it as proceeding. So belief in the proceeding knowledge of Allah subhanahu wa taala, that Allah subhanho wa Taala knows everything that will happen, everything that did happen, and if something could have happened to differently than Allah subhanho wa Taala would have known that as well. And those are like, you know, three main points to understand from that, everything that did happen, everything that will happen, and every
if something could have happened to differently than Allah subhanho wa Taala would have known about it as well, Allah subhanaw taala would have known it as well. Proof from this from the Quran, circle and fell verse 23 circle and fell, verse 23, what Allah subhanaw taala says, although animala houfy himcolin smart home with a smart home, the Toronto home moredun that had Allah subhanaw taala known any good in them, he would have made them here. And even if they did here, they would have turned away from the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala they would have turned away from, you know, the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So here, let's find out what's out there is saying that, you
know, his guidance did not come to them, because he knew his preceding knowledge was that this there is no good in these people. And that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala did not guide them That is why Allah subhanaw taala did not guide them. And then obviously the the verse in SoTL, an arm that we studied, verse 59, where Allah subhanaw taala says that the keys of the unseen are with him, and no one knows them, but he no one knows them. But he and nothing happens in this earth or in the oceans, except that Allah subhanaw taala has knowledge of it, not a leaf follows, except that Allah subhanaw taala has knowledge of it. And this is truly amazing Subhanallah that, you know, even the smallest
detail of a snowflake falling, you know, when the snowfall happens, literally millions, if not billions of snow falls are falling. And let's find out Allah has made them unique in so many ways. And the fact that a particular snowfall will come in land in a particular place. You know, as young kids, you'd always you'd from time to time and stick your tongue out, and the snowflake would fall on your tongue. Allah subhanho wa Taala had destined for that snowflake to fall on your tongue. So you were at that right place at the right time, that snowflake came down at the right place at the right pace, at the right time. And you were destined to meet at that time. Now you tie this in
particularly, you know to the people that you meet in your life, that from time to time you will meet people in your life. And they're there to teach you so many things to panela some people they're there to teach you patience, right? They're there to test your patience. There, they'll frustrate you, they will annoy you and you're like why is this person in my life? They're there to teach you patience. Other people you know, they're a different type of blessing. We're positive optimistic people right? We don't call these people that are they're a curse from a lower say they're a different type of blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala other people you can vividly see
you know what they're there for. Some people are there to guide you. Some people are there to help you. Some people are there just to motivate you and inspire you. Everything happens for a reason. And this all proceeded in the knowledge of Allah subhana wa Tada. And this is why you know the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala is perhaps the most integral part of it, because related to the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala is Allah His wisdom is Allah justice is Allah's love and compassion, and generosity, all of these are tied in to the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala that all those knowledge is encompassed by all of those facets, and all those facets bring about the
perfect, perfectly fashioned designed world that we live in, that everything is there in its proper place at its proper time, in the fashion that it was meant to be. And this is all with the knowledge of Allah subhana wa Tada. The second level of father is an email no Bill keytab an email no Bill keytab belief in the writing down of Qatar belief in the writing down Of course.
Now what this is specifically referring to is that Allah subhanaw taala has written down everything that will take place from the beginning of time till the end of time, in which book who knows what is that book called? aloha my fourth, right? It is called the low Halima for the preserved tablet. Allah subhanho wa Taala has written down everything that is going to happen from the beginning of time till the end of time. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, In the Ola mahalo kala, who will call them call Allahu Oktober, Jura be till Casa de mer who are located in Illa Yamuna piano, that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the first thing Allah subhana wa
tada created was the pen he told it to write and it wrote everything that will take place from that time, till the Day of Judgment. He wrote everything that will take place from that time till the Day of Judgment, and this is reported by Muhammad and tell me the report by Muhammad and tell me another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, cuts up Allahumma Qadir al Qaeda. cobla yakushima the company
Center. We're out of Shahada raha Muslim that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said Allah subhana wa tada has written, you know the destiny of all of creation, before the creation of the heavens and the earth by 50,000 years by 50,000 years and this hadith was reported by Muslim this hadith was reported by Muslim so here Allah subhana wa tada he had written called or written down 50,000 years before the creation of the heavens in the earth before we were even created before this world was created 50,000 years before it, Allah subhanho wa Taala had the puddle written down
50,000 years before it and this is all part of the perfect plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala like all of that preparation of one thing leading to the other Allah subhanaw taala destined it and written it down 50,000 years before it even you know took place 50,000 years before it even took place for the memorizers of the Quran. Can anyone think of any verses that talk about the Kitab of Allah subhanho wa Taala with the writing down of Allah subhanho wa Taala verses go ahead
I'm sure love my show was
fantastic. So um Al Kitab over here is referring to the no Whole Foods and Allah subhana wa Tada. You know, Destiny as he pleases? Fantastic. In other words, can we think of another verse that talks about the writing down of Allah subhanaw taala
which is Allah subhanho wa Taala say
you can't remember
Sagan somewhere in the Koran, you know, it's somewhere in there. Let me give you one that's very clear. This is insert a comma 52 and 53 where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, we'll call O'Shea in for Allah Hafiz Zuber wakulla sahelian waka beer in mustard, mustard.
So let's find out and he says that everything that today do is in a book and every small and big has been lined meaning has been written down has been written down, pseudo comma 52 and 53. In other words, where Allah subhanaw taala talks about this, he says, I'm Adam and Allah, Allah will manifest somehow he was out in the valley, Kofi Khattab in the valley Gala. He is here so this is sort of hedge verse 70 sort of hedge verse 70 that do they not? Do you not know that Allah subhana wa tada knows everything in the heavens and the earth. All of that is in a book and everything is easy for Allah subhanaw taala and everything is easy for Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Now that is a general book of others, that is a general book of Qatar that has the father of everything in it, right. And as individuals, Allah subhanho wa Taala has written specific order for us specific guidance for us, your hammock, Allah, this specific order, is the book that will be presented to you on the Day of Judgment, write that in circle GAF Allah subhanaw taala he says llevado sahelian will be written in the saga, that this being what is with this book, that not a small thing or a big thing took place or that we did, except that Allah subhana wa tada had it written down. So over here, this is like the consequence of that initial book. So Allah subhanaw
taala, routed it wrote it down, we did those actions, and they were further written down again, they were further written down again, though, that is the consequence of that first quarter that took place. Now, is all of that one type is all of one type in terms of its writing? And the answer to that is no, the answer to that is no. So the cutter that is written in La Palma food, that cutter will never change, that cutter will never change. Once it is written down, then that is the color that will take place till the end of time. That is the color that will not change. Now what do we mean by color changing? There's the Hadith of the Prophet of Salaam reported in the tirmidhi, where
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says nothing changes color, other than
to are nothing changes either other than do. And it's not the only Hadith that talks about other, but there's an opportunity for that. But they're also seldom said in a different Hadith that nothing prolongs one's life like what prolongs one's life. Silla Torah, obtaining good times with one's family. So that is another example of Qatar being changed. So What color is this referring to? What color is this referring to? This is the coddle that the scholars talk about that is written down at various stages in one's life at various stages in one's life. So the hadith of webbing Masuda de la one, or the other one with the fdlr, you know is that the statement of webisode or of the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the assumption it is from the prophet SAW, etc, or even from even the Buddha giving us a duty to speak out of his own desire, he must have heard it from the processor, just in this Hadith, it's not from the processor with a difference of opinion, that that is the cutter that's written down at the beginning of one's life, right? That how long he will live where he will die, will he be happy and content, you know, his sustenance. All of these are written down at the his birth, that type of color, it can change
based upon the deeds that a person does, actions that a person takes another type of clutter that is written down is color that is written down on the night of later other than on that night, the other for the following year is written down everything that will take place. So that color is also written down. There's a verse in Surah Rahman, which portada, the student of Eben arbuscular, the Allahu anhu, or the LA monument understood as every day there is a cutter that is written down, where Allah subhanaw taala he says, Kula Yeoman who officiant that everyday Allah subhanho wa Taala is engaged in in something right? They said that this is the writing down of kata that every day,
there's a code that is written down. So the color that is in the law, and that code is not changed, but the color that is written down that other times can change through and can change to the actions that we do. What's important to understand over here is why are those actions actually there? What is the role of those actions, the role of those actions is just like everything else, you're hungry, you go to the fridge, you need money, you go out to work, then likewise, when you need something you make Do you want your life prolonged, you do it through keeping good ties of kinship, you do through a good type of kinship. There are millions of us about there are a stub there it means that Allah
subhana wa Taala has made for us to change the our fate and to our destiny, to a certain degree change our fate and destiny to a certain degree. So that is the second type of belief in God, which is the writing of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The third type, the third level of belief in Qatar is an Emmanuel be Misha Tila, what are the T and Emmanuel be mushiya Tilda yada t. Now these two terms are very important to understand mushiya and Elijah, Misha and Elijah, but before we get to that, let's take some verses from the Quran. Allah affirms this. The first is sort of clear verse 29 will matter shall una Illa inertia Allah horrible either mean that you will not wish for anything or desire
anything except that Allah subhana wa Taala has willed it already. Lord of all the words will Lord of all the worlds Lord of all the worlds.
In this verse, Allah subhanaw taala makes it clear that anything that we wish and desire and will it will not take place except that Allah Spano tala has willed it already. So what is the difference between mushiya and Elijah, the mushiya of Allah subhanho wa Taala is of only one type and this is what we will call the will the general will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So something takes place, something doesn't take place. This is the mushiya of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is what we call mushiya where if it will take place or not take place. This is the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala the Rada of Allah subhanho wa Taala is of two types, the Radha of Allah subhanho wa Taala is of two
types. And this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala it's translated as once, but I need you to understand more the concept more than the translation that we're using understand the concept more than the translation that we're using. So the first type of Harada is your order to konia a theological konia is what Allah wants, from his creation generally, from what Allah subhanaw taala wants from his creation generally, what we mean by this theological konia is everything that we as human beings have no role in whatsoever everything that we as human beings have no role in whatsoever. When the sun rises, when the sun sets, the positioning of the mountains, the positioning
of the clouds, when someone lives when someone dies. All of this we have no role in whatsoever. This is a theological konia this Allah subhanaw taala created the cone, the universal law of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is what you know, an appropriate translation is the universal law is a theological Konya, though the law that Allah subhanaw taala created everything to be dictated by that is a theological konia
then the second type of ellada is an errata, to Sharia, and ellada. To a Sharia. And what this means is, these are the things that Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us wants from us in terms of either doing them or abstaining from them, either doing them or abstaining from them. This is the the road to Sharia, meaning the legislative, you know, wanting of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And what this means is that there are certain things that Allah subhanaw taala wants us to do, which are legislated. And these are things like praying things like fasting, things like being good to our neighbor, things like doing good deeds in general, things that Allah wants to stop stealing from as
well. Things like lying things like stealing things like you know, fornication and adultery. These are things that Allah subhanaw taala wants us to stay away. Right. So now when you read a verse, When master sha Allah insha Allah, that you will not will something except that Allah subhanaw taala has willed it already. Can someone say that? You know what, I committed this bad deed? Because Allah willed it. Can we argue that that I committed this bad deed because Allah subhanho wa Taala willed it and the only
30 that is know that nothing happens without the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala and without the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But the bad that happens in the bad that you do is from your own self, Allah subhanaw taala didn't force you to do that you had a conscious choice in doing that, right? It was not enforced upon you. And this is where the understanding of the logical konia and the law are eroded to Sharia is important that the radical Konya is imposed upon you, there is nothing that you can do, they can delay the rising of the sun, you know, you're waking up late for fudger, there's like five minutes left, there's nothing that you can do that can slow the sun down,
right? This is the illogical konia. On the other hand, what you can change are the deeds that you do you know, no one's stopping you from doing good deeds. No one's forcing you to do bad deeds. That is what is, you know, pertaining to you. Now, that was number one that you have no role in Konya, your full role in Sharia. A second thing to understand is what will you be questioned about? Will you be questioned about konia? Or will you be questioned about Sharia? The answer to that is that you will only be questioned about the Sharia your only response to the question about that which you are responsible for, you will not be questioned about that which you are not responsible for. So this is
a second in our understanding of the auditor sialorrhea, that you will only be questioned about the second type and not the first so only that which is pertaining to you only that which is pertaining to you. So that is the mushiya and the iraida of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then the fourth and last level of belief in God, the fourth and last level of belief in God and a man who believe God will help Emmanuel believe God will help. So this is belief in the perfect creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala the belief in the perfect creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala What does this actually mean? What this means is that everything besides Allah subhana wa tada is created everything besides Allah
subhanho wa Taala is created.
Now it's important to understand what the creation of Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhana wa tada created some things through a means and some things without a means. Okay, what does that mean exactly? Simple human creation, Adam alayhis salaam was created without a mother and father he was created directly with through by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right Allah created him with his own two hands. So this is a direct creation without any means taking place whatsoever, our creation, we were not as miraculous in nature. You know, some of us Mashallah we are quite miraculous, we're not as miraculous as that. Right? Unless find out that it created us through our parents that, you know,
our parents got together, we were born through our parents. So this is a means through this, we this is a creation through means a creation through means.
Now, there is an example that some of the predecessors mentioned over here in Charlotte, it'll come back to me to deals with the apple tree deals with the apple tree.
Yeah, so Okay, this is how we're going to tie it in. So the reason why we mentioned that everything except for Allah subhanaw taala is created, is that if you have a bad apple, do you blame the tree? If you have a bad apple? do you blame the tree? You know, why did the tree make this bad apple? Right? You don't use it? You do? You don't blame the tree per se. Right? You say that? You know, so many things could have happened that made the apple the way it was it could have fallen, you know, some the water was contaminated. The soil was contaminated. You know, so many things could have happened. But no one in the right mind says you know, it's all the trees for the tree must have done
this right. Now, the way that we're tying this in, is that when it comes to the good deeds that we do, then the good deeds are purely from Allah subhanaw taala the good deeds are purely from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Whereas the bad deeds that we do, then they are not from Allah subhanho wa Taala they are but they are purely from ourselves purely from ourselves. And this is you know, from the duality Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say at the end of his da was chartreux Lisa illich. That evil is not attributed to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Evil is not attributed to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Evil is attributed to mankind himself, he was attributed to mankind him self. Now
there's a funny story about, you know, a scholar in the past dealing with like, a really like, weird, funny person, where this person when it came to good deeds, he wouldn't do any of them. When it came to bad deeds, he would do all of them. Right. And the scholar of the past told him that when it comes to good deeds, you are cloudy, and when it comes to bad deeds, you are Jeopardy and what does this exactly mean? What this means is that, you know, when it comes to good deeds, people are like, you know, what, if Allah wanted me to do it, he would have made me do it. Right. If Allah wanted me to do it, he would have made me do it. But when it comes to bad deeds, what did they say?
You know what Allah forced me to do this deed Allah force me to
Allah forcemeat Delilah forcing me to to commit this sin right? So when it comes to the good deeds they're like you know what, if Allah wants me to do it to compel me to do it when it comes to bad deeds that like we were compelled to do so we were compelled to do so. And this leads us into our discussion of what are the different groups in terms of their beliefs in different groups in terms of their belief in God Who can tell me what the first headache insights for a Muslim is? You open up Sahih Muslim what is headache number one for knows
something do it. I think you're Okay, then. I was talking to someone the other day Exactly. You don't remember the details? What do you mean with that? How was the headache was though? That's like this introduction to the headache. Yeah. So that you mentioned in the introduction, what was the actual headache? Hi, this is GB so in the Milan Albania is the first time you can spell Bukhari, the first headache inside so how much of them is the hadith of gibreel? The hadith of gibreel. Now the introduction to the hadith of gibreel is that two men came to Abdullah bin Amara de la Juan Juan de la Noma. And they said, Yeah, man, look, there's a group of people that deny the proceeding
knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They deny the color of Allah subhanho wa tada Abdullah bin Omar Abdullah, he told these people that look, tell these people that I am free from them and they are free from me. By Allah. If these people donated and sacrificed in amount offered in gold, it would not be accepted from them it would not be accepted from them. For I heard my father say that one day an angel came to the house of Solomon you mentioned the hadith of gibreel. So that is the introduction to the Hadith, where Abdullah Amara de la Noma, it shows us that one of the first you know signs of deviation that took place during the time of the Sahaba was the deviation of God, that
was the deviation of cada and the first group we will speak about is the Korea the first group we will speak about is the podria. And the podria are those is that group that denied by the law together they denied a cada altogether the like, Allah does not have knowledge and you will see the various phases that they went through. They denied the knowledge Allah subhanaw taala did denied the writing of Allah subhanaw taala did deny that Allah had you know any will or he created, you know the actions and so on and so forth. But one thing I did forget to do, is that I did not give you verses from the Quran for the fourth level of God that correct. I didn't give you verses. So let's
go back to that then we'll get back to this inshallah. So verses from the Quran that talk about this. Number one sort of Zoomer verse 62, sort of Zoomer verse 62. Allah who call Yoko Konishi well, who Allah cliche invoking that Allah subhana wa tada created everything and he is you know, and then trustee for everything. Number two salasar fact verse 96 or fat versus 96 Wallah Hakuna Matata I'm alone, that Allah subhanho wa Taala created you and that which you do, Allah subhanaw taala created you and that which you do so here let's find out I think that everything is created, even the actions that we commit, even the actions that we commit, our the actions that we do, the good of
them is attributed to Allah, the better them is attributed to ourselves, the better of them is attributed to ourselves. Now let's get back to the podria. The first level of Kataria is this is what we call we'll call Allahu Allah, Allah podria meaning they are the you know, the exaggerated buddleia and they are the ones that denied all of the four levels of color. But most importantly, they deny the proceeding knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they denied the writing of Allah subhanaw taala they denied these two aspects of you know, Allah subhanaw taala scholar, his knowledge and his writing. Now obviously, if you deny the knowledge in the writing of Allah subhanho
wa Taala by default, actually, by denying the first one by default, you're denying you know the other the other four, right, the other three sorry, by default, that's what ends up happening. So this is the first group of bhadauria now, the criteria were also called the modules of this oma they're also called the modules of the semester a famous terminology that is attributed to throw Selim and many, many of the predecessors Why are they called the modules of this oma? The modules if you look at them, they believed in a God that created good, and they believed in a God that created that they believe that God created God and a God that created that. Now, why do they call it the
Medusa of this oma because they believe that lots of high notes either created things, but then they also believe that we ourselves are creators, that we create our own destiny, we create our own destiny that all of our actions are self created. Allah subhanho wa Taala has nothing to do with them. That is why they call it the Medusa of this oma. So that is the first level of podria dakoda podria. The second level of Korea is those that only denied the last two aspects of the multiple gods that denied the last two levels of Father, which is that the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the creation of our actions and the creation of our actions, which particular group held this
belief. It was the Mattila that held this belief the motto
asila v held this belief that look, we are free to do as we please, while Allah subhanaw taala knows everything he does not actually will our action, there's no will of Allah subhana wa Tada, when it comes to our actions, there's no will of Allah subhanho wa Taala when it comes to our actions.
So those are the two levels of, you know, the Korea, the older them and the new of them, the order them, they denied everything, the new of them, they affirmed the first two, they denied the last two, they denied the last two. Now we get to the Jeopardy now we get to the Jeopardy, and the jabariya were those group that believed that we were compelled to do everything that we have no free will, whatsoever we have no free will, what so ever. And their biggest, you know, misinterpretation was when Allah subhanaw taala talks about the cone, they understood from the the role of the cone, the universal laws, that they apply to us as well, that the everything that in the rising of the
sun, the setting of the sun, happens by this universal law. And that applies to us as well that everything that is mentioned to happen will be you know, from the corner of Allah only and that we are compelled to do these things. Now, even from a logical argument, it's very, very easy to refute this, and this is what you know, I've been saying me out to him, Allah mentions that when you look at other people of innovation, one of the first things you'll notice about them is the contradiction in their beliefs, the contradiction in their beliefs, and then we present the the way that they present things. So for example, you know, they do a bad deed, there'll be like I was compelled to do
this, Allah forced me to do this, you slap the person in the face, and you're like, you know what, I was forced to slap you in the face? And they're like, No, you weren't, you did that of your own into the your own accord, right? And as like a contradiction in his belief that he's not going to believe in the end that you are compelled to do so anymore, right? This is just like, you know, a contradiction in their beliefs. So in terms of the jabariya even Samia Rahim Allah he actually argued that not only are they the the stupider out of the two, because their argument is very fallacious. But also in fact, there the more evil or out of the two there, the more evil or out of
the two, because they don't want to accept accountability for their own sense. They want to attribute their sins to Allah subhanho wa Taala they want to attribute their sins to Allah subhanho wa Taala How would you refute both of these groups together with one set of verses sort of the clear 28 and 29 sort of the clear, verse 28 and 29, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, Lehman Shah, I mean, come on, you're stuck with him. Well, Natasha, una Illa in sha Allah who have been adamant that whoever amongst you wants to rectify himself, then he is able to do so. And you will not will anything except that Allah subhanaw taala has willed it already or not will anything except that
Allah subhanho wa Taala has wielded already dementia or minco. This is a refutation of the jeopardy. This is a reputation of deliberate jeopardy. One master shot on an 11 year sha Allah, this the reputation of the podria this reputation of the Kataria.
Now, in terms of the different groups, where did they fall in their beliefs? So let's talk about the ashadha. First, the shaila they will not openly come out and say we are jabariya without openly come out and say that we are jabariya. But when you look at the you know their beliefs in further, it seems that they are closer to the Jeopardy, I believe it seems that they are closer to the jeopardy. What is the actual term that they use to talk about Crowder, they use a term called casp, a term called casp. You know, when we talk about, you know, working to earn one risk, we call this cross border risk, right? When it comes to Qatar because they're there the term cast as well. Ignore
claim, Rahim Allah, he talks about three words that are used in Islamic theology that do not make sense, meaning that no matter how much you try to understand them, they will not truly make sense. So he says that I can imagine that two out of caspo in the last sorry, Well, hello in the bash me were thoughtful in the navami. So these three words cause
hell and thought of, you know, they're used by different theologians of the past, but the one that we want to focus on this CUSP. So first of all, we're here as defined by the shaila. They said this is as if you're carrying a table, it is as if you are carrying a table. And this table has two people carrying it. One of them is Allah subhanaw taala. And you know, it's amazing how they, you know, attribute anthropomorphism. Do you look at this example, this is a complete anthropomorphism. They like to be carrying this table. And one person is carrying the table in his complete weight and is completed totality. And the second person is just like holding on to it since like, you know,
when you're moving someone stuff, there's one guy that strong is helping out and he's doing like the burden of the work. And the other guy just being lazy, just like showing that, hey, you know, I'm actually carrying something when in fact he is putting no strength or effort into it whatsoever. This is their understanding of God that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one that is putting in all the effort and we are just, you know, doing the action.
of portrayal, right? That is the understanding. And this is again, my limited understanding of what the customer is under the shadow. But if you look at what the scholars or listener define it as this is like what they define as custom, that there's a major player, a major role player, a minor role player, human beings are the minor role player, Allah subhanaw. taala is a major role player. And at the end of the day, we are in fact compelled to do the things that we do, we don't have a free choice. In those actions, we don't have a free choice in those actions. The Shia groups, they were also from the from this group darauf, whether they are from this group of Jeopardy, they believe
that the winner we were compelled to do the actions that we do, we were compelled to do the actions that we were to do, I didn't clearly understand their arguments or their understanding of why they developed it, but this is what is attributed to them. And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. The last thing I want to talk about is the role of taking the means and and powder the role of taking the means and taking cada su already mentioned the Hadith of the camera that was was told the man to camel, put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala tie your camel and put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala and then in the second Hadith and this is a hadith reported by quality 4948 it's in mcquoddy
4948 and in most of them 2647 and most of them 2647. And this is important in today's to understand when we talk about actions over here. So the pharmacist was asked or messenger of Allah that you know since destiny is predestined, does that mean we have to do good deeds, meaning you have Jenna is already written for us. January has already been done for some people. You know why what is the point of doing actions right? That is what the Sahaba della Han Han are asking the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says he responds by saying for colon Maria Sharon Lima Haleakala for mankind Amina Sahaja Sara hola who the Armenian
Genocide woman Canada Minneapolis Chicago. Yes, Sarah Hello, who the family. Sarah Who? The family Alicia Kawa. So here the prophet SAW his son he responds by saying that each and every individual will find easy that which he was created for will find easy that he will he was created for so whoever is from the abode of happiness, Allah will make easy for him the actions of the Abode the actions of the people of the abode of happiness, and whoever whoever is from the abode of, you know treachery and Shirakawa, like unpleasant false stuff, then Allah subhanaw taala will make easy for him, those actions will make easy for him those actions. So here the pastor seldom is again
commanding the companions of the Allahu anhu that you need to take action in your life, right you need to take action in your life. And these actions are what will lead you towards the path of Paradise and will always lead you towards the path of the how far now what is this? Why is this particularly important and relevant that Allah subhanho wa Taala is creation a Ty's guidelines? And Allah subhanho wa Taala does not, you know, just randomly choose and place people in Paradise and in the Hellfire, right? Allah will not just randomly place them there. Say you know what? This one looks good. So let's make it for the people of paradise. This one's ugly, so let's put them in
Johanna. That's not how the laws of Allah subhanaw taala work, but they're based upon actions right, those actions that incur the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala, then Allah will be merciful to them, those actions that incur the Wrath of Allah subhanho wa Taala, then Allah subhana wa Taala will show him the His wrath, right? That's the way it works. So at the end of the day, if a person does no action, they cannot expect to receive mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala. In terms of Paradise, right, Allah will show them other forms of mercy in this world. But in terms of Paradise, it is only for those who lead did the actions that incurred mercy. And likewise, in terms of the Hellfire,
Allah subhanho wa Taala will show His wrath and will show his anger to those people that did the actions that were encouraging of it. And this shows us the importance of, you know, taking action at all times. You cannot just merely say I'm putting my trust in the law. But as Muslims, we are people of action, we do not just believe it. Theoretically, we are people of action, you want to go to Paradise, you have to do the pee the actions of the people of paradise. You want to abstain from the Hellfire, you need to avoid the actions of the people of how far and that is how a person gets there. That is how a person gets there. Now, from this Hadith, we understand that Allah subhanho wa
Taala will make easy for the path to paradise for the one that it is destined for, and we'll make easy the path of the how far the one that is destined for it. Notice over here, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not say that Allah will compel you to do those actions, right, he will not compel you to do the actions of the people that paradise you will not compel you to do the actions of the people of hellfire. But those people that are destined to go there, it will be manifest in their actions, right those it will be manifest in their actions. So there's no such thing as getting to paradise. Without actions. There's no such thing as abstaining from the from the
Hellfire without abstaining from those actions. So
It is a conscious decision that people make in terms of going to gender and gender is a conscious decision that people make in terms of going to gender, and gender. And this goes back to that versus sort of the queer feminist, from Jeremy Corbyn is the group that whoever amongst you wants to rectify himself has the ability to do so that when it comes to faith, when it comes to religion, there is no excuse of God, this is a conscious decision that all of us make, right? We cannot say we were compelled to do this bad. And when it comes to good deeds, we're like, you know, what, if Allah wanted me to do so, I could have done so. Right. So this is just a brief introduction to gather. If
you would like more information on whether I can remain I recommend two resources in the English language for you guys. inshallah. Number one is the translation of the shall have an updated to last year, but shake-up know what they mean. We have it available in their library. It's it's two brown books with a golden pages. So that has a detailed explanation of the belief or lesson and reputation of the deviant groups when it comes to product. That is perhaps the most detailed thing. I don't know that's available for free online, I haven't seen it. Another book, which is available for free online, is an introduction to Qatar, by Dr. salia has solid This is translating to English, and is
available on that other site that I alluded to in a previous lecture. You can download it for free over there. Another resource that I recommend is not a book, but it's like a compilation of notes. Jacqueline personally taught raise a faith and in it he talks about Qatar is very well presented. So you can download the notes for raise the faith as well. By shakily the asuni, those are resources in English can we think of anything else in the English language?
Amara, Lashkar shakaama Lashkar is our key this series is seven or eight volumes, one of those volumes is what either one of those volumes is about Qatar, you can read more over there as well that's a fantastic resource. And that can can be downloaded for free in sha Allah and the other resources who had
i'm talking about English
I'm sure you did.
So yeah, those that's it for resources in English in terms of resources in Arabic, then there are many many resources that come in Arabic that any shout out volocity or any detailed shot or you know any shout have any major arcada book, except for the books that are in the by that you will find an explanation of God in it. Yeah.
This book is translated a bunch of
there's like a bunch of video clips. Okay, so how did they look it up? What What did they look? I know but what do they look up?
You find that inshallah, we will conclude that to Allah hudaydah Allah sallallahu Sallam roboticle in the Vienna Muhammad, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam?
Yeah, we're going to do questions, and I'm trying to think if I forgot anything.
Yeah, that's it. I don't have anything else to add. So let's do questions.
Yep, go ahead. The other
mentioned in terms of the changes that can be that can be changed, yes.
is allowed to be written down first and then to be changed.
Why does so that's the first question isn't the problem the the problem of the way we question we shouldn't ask why. Right? Right. What is the possible wisdom behind it? To give people hope, you know, at the end of the day, that people should never think that you know what, this is what has been destined for me I have no control in it right. And part of our belief is that there is a part of that changes through the good deeds that we do and the bad deeds that we do and other Hadith and there's like a weakness in the Hadith that nothing decreases once it is collected since that we do right so the it shows you that the good days and bad deeds work both ways, good deeds you do they
increase your sustenance, increase your other bad deeds that you do, they actually decrease your risk and, you know, decrease, quote unquote, gathered over here. So one of the positive wisdoms is the element of hope that there's always hope for change, hope for for betterment, or for improvement, hope to strive harder. That's one of the wisdoms behind it, I was to think of another wisdom behind this is door to work harder as well, right? That, you know, the postal system, he tells us how to stand on it, and folk that, you know, actively pursue that which is beneficial to you. So all of us, we want the good aspects of God, and you have to actively pursue them in order
for them to take place. You want to be a successful businessman, you need to start a business, you can't just sit in your couch, you know, on your computer and say, you know, a business is going to start up, right. So the actively pursue things, that's the second wisdom behind it. Well, Ah, no, I don't know, got to get a limb in order to say Oh, they shouldn't
fly by that plane. Oh, I should have left on that. They waited. Yeah, the person before he actually explicitly forbade us from that he said, Do not say if I did so and so then the low yester who I'm going to say Todd, because such statements, they open up the door of sheet on making the thing that if you did something differently, you would actually control your destiny.
At the end of the day, if Allah wanted you to die, no matter what you did at that time, you would have died either by a plane crashing in the plane, or the plane crashing on top of you, right? Everything is by the color of Allah from that aspect for me to be scared on the fly now I know I have to.
No, not at all. Not at all. Not at all, there's more chances of you dying while crossing the street than there is like an I know plane crash. Right? So from that aspect, put your trust in Allah. And wherever you are meant to die whenever you are meant to die. Whatever fashion you're meant to, to diet. I was written there down already, and it will not escape you, even if you don't go on that plane, if you're meant to down in a play to somehow end up their spinal. Right. So we just try our best and put our trust in the last panel. What's odd? Yeah, no problem. Any other last questions?
That wasn't me. I don't know how mentioned that.
There are some narrations that alludes to that, that the angels have their own books through which they document color and change the color in terms of anything authentic. I don't know anything authentic about that. Allah one.
Yes. It is an authentic hadith. Yeah.
You can rewatch this holochain shala. We actually discussed this hadith in particular. Yeah, no problem. So you can read watch the halaqa. No problems and we'll discuss it was discussed there.
Third, we'll conclude with that particular movie. I'm Nikki shawanda in Atlanta, safilo go to blue lake.
