00:01:31--> 00:02:11

Continuing from where we left off yesterday, due to the shortage of time, I thought we'd go over some of the points again, two key things that we left out yesterday were proofs for the Messiah and the health of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So firstly, let's take a look at some of the proofs for the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Al anon, which is Surah number six and is 39 may mean yourself a lovely little woman. Yes, we are Jaga who are awesome stuffing, Allah subhanaw taala says In this ayah that whoever he was, he allows to stay and whoever he guides

00:02:12--> 00:03:01

and whoever he wishes, he may guide to the straight path. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says and totally Brahim I have 27 loyal, loyal below love of Allah means via Allahumma yourself, that Allah Subhana Allah will misguide the opposite, and Allah does what he will. So we can see that the indication or the proof from this ayah is quite clear. Allah subhanho wa Taala is explicitly and clearly saying that Allah subhana wa tada will miss guide, or allow us to stray those people who are oppressive, and Allah does as he pleases. Well, yes, I love omega, and Allah does as he pleases. And likewise we all know the famous is at the end of sorts of nakara. Allah Subhana Allah says in the

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

fire was your only nature while you as the Buddha said

00:03:06--> 00:03:55

that he forgave him he will. And He punished his home he will. So we see that these are just three of the many is in the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about his mushiya or his will. Now let us take a look at what is mentioned in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in terms of mushiya in a hadith narrated by email Muslim Rahim Allah hota Allah, we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said in the follow up nikolova Vani Adam cola hardiness Dinah Manasa Dr. Rosman Calvin Whitehead, your service Oh, hi Sonia, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that indeed the hearts of the children of Adam, all of them are between the two fingers of the

00:03:55--> 00:04:35

fingers of Eros magnin Allah subhanho wa Taala they are like 100 and he guides them or changes them and turns them as he pleases. So we see in this hadith that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he affirmed the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala at the very end of the day, when he says, you sorry for who hates that he changes it and turns it, meaning that he drives it and misguided as he pleases. So we see the mention of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran and Sunnah as well. So now let's take some of the food for the Hulk of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:04:37--> 00:04:46

As for the Hulk of Allah subhanho wa Taala in Nakayama Rahim Allah who Tana mentioned in his new near our Lisa de karma Delhi to be

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

a daddy Holly Ross many men Alfie was in Korea will you see her lady your Navy has your Navy hydration and no fiber? I'ma holla he says over here

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

And indeed, the proofs indicate that the actions of the slaves are a creation of man. And there are more than 1000 proofs or close to 1000 proofs, whoever takes the time to enumerate them and be proficient in this affair, meaning that the one who takes the time to reflect upon the idea of the Quran and the Sunnah, will see that the proof that Allah subhana wa Tada, created our actions are more than 1000 or close to it, he will clearly see it upon reflecting and returning back to the context of the court under the center.

00:05:39--> 00:05:50

But, you know, we don't have the time to go into that much detail in terms of proof. So let's just take one or two is from the Quran and we suffice to say that these nilla hits Allah.

00:05:51--> 00:06:20

So Allah subhanho wa Taala, he says into the Zoomer, which is one of 39, I am number 60, to a level high level policing. And likewise, Allah, Allah says, In surah Furqan, which is Surah number 25, I in number two wahala taco Lee say in Sokka, da da, da da da. Now, the truth or the point of indications for the proof from this, from these two is, is the term khalifate or coolessay in a second.

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

Now, cola as we know in the Arabic language is an all inclusive and encompassing term meaning when we say everything like in the English language, it means that there is no exception to it. Right? Same thing over here, when Allah subhanho wa Taala uses the term coloane it is an all encompassing, all inclusive term for everything. So everything besides Allah subhanho wa Taala is created. And we mentioned this yesterday, that sometimes Allah subhanaw taala will create something by a medium or sometimes they will create it without a medium.

00:07:01--> 00:07:48

So this is a clear proof for our listeners, Gemma that Allah subhana wa Tada, creates as he pleases, when he pleases whatever he pleases, and that everything besides Him is created due to the all encompassing and all inclusivity of the term colo in the Arabic language. And likewise, we see that Allah subhanaw taala. He didn't make any exceptions after this is you know, sometimes, you might even be able to mention like in the English language, you will say that, you know, I did all of my choice, except for such and such, right, even though you term use the term old, there's still an exception to it right. Similarly, it is feasible or it is possible, that one might include an

00:07:48--> 00:07:57

exception over here. But do we see that Allah subhanaw taala didn't place that exception. So everything besides Allah subhanho wa Taala is created.

00:07:58--> 00:08:09

Now, to expand on some further points, and from them is what is the relationship between father and daughter as

00:08:10--> 00:08:35

we know from the hadith of Mohammed enjoyable Raja Allahu taala, who as mentioned in the sunon, as in images, and authenticated by Nicolas De Niro, Allahu taala, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Nothing changes further, except for the US. Now, what is this hadith mean? How is it possible for others to change? And how do we understand this study?

00:08:36--> 00:09:03

In a nutshell, yesterday, we were discussing the different types of VR, right, we mentioned the top of the roll. And then we mentioned the top of the s&p and then we mentioned the top of the hill as the army, right, these are the different types of stuff there. And one needs to understand the relationship between the top there a salary and the top there are the only in relationship to the top there,

00:09:04--> 00:09:15

which is what we refer to either as the top there which was written 50,000 years ago, or what is within you know, at the one's birth,

00:09:16--> 00:09:21

the relationship between the top there is no end of a deal to me.

00:09:22--> 00:09:46

And the top being the top there, which was written 50,000 prior to the creation of the heavens and the earth is that they are two different things. Allah subhanho wa Taala before the creation of the heavens and the earth, order the angels to write down or order the pen to write down everything that will take place. And once it was written, that cannot and will not be changed.

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

Whereas the top of their alumi and the top do a salary that is what actually can be changed. So for example, we mentioned that the salary takes place on the night of Layla

00:10:00--> 00:10:18

further ado we know the month of Ramadan is a blessed month where all the Muslims are making dua for themselves. So on this night, Allah subhana wa Jalla me ordered the angels to say that you know, do not grant such and such person a child and take away such and such amount from his wealth.

00:10:19--> 00:10:31

But then the slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala, he may make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala and say, Oh Allah blessed me with a child, or Allah blessed me with

00:10:32--> 00:10:47

his original Kabir for that year, may have been that he may have not been desperate for a child, but due to him making that to die in a live setting that Allah subhanho wa Taala will change his specific fodder for that year to come.

00:10:48--> 00:11:29

Now one thing to keep in mind is that even though this takbeer for the following year, or the following day, or whatever the case may be, may have changed. All of this is written down in the DRAM, meaning the Wi Fi for the 60,000 years of the creation of the heavens and the earth. All this is narrated, and all of this was jotted down, that is sub zero, the witness second such and then the slave of Allah will make the AI which would cause it to cave. So the ultimate say is in the top of the armor, everything, the smallest and most minute details is noted down. And what can change is the data center, we are the top there alumi depending on the situation.

00:11:30--> 00:11:47

So that is what needs to be understood in terms of further ado, as an exam, I hope it's clear to all the brothers and sisters. Now a second point that I would like to expand on is the concept of evil, not being attributed to Allah subhanaw taala

00:11:48--> 00:11:57

that Allah subhanho wa Taala he created everything that is besides him, right? And from his creation

00:11:58--> 00:11:59

is

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

those things which are good.

00:12:04--> 00:12:16

And those things that which may seem not so good. Now, how do we reconcile this? And the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, what's your role later? Like?

00:12:17--> 00:12:44

How do we understand between Allah subhanho wa Taala, creating everything that is decisive and form it is good and bad. And then the prophets of Allah, Allah sent him saying that evil is not attributed to you, oh, Allah. The way we understand this is, and we'll take an example over here, like we mentioned examples in parables, they help in the clarification of the subject matter. So let's take the example of a tree,

00:12:45--> 00:13:08

a farmer, he will plant his seed, and we'll hope that this tree will go by the will of Allah. And eventually, this tree, it will give off some sort of fruit. Now, let's just say this is an orange tree, and always comes out really, really sour, is the oil is the selling of the oil attributed to the tree or to the farmer.

00:13:09--> 00:14:02

No sane person will say that it is reformers fault for the oil being sour, right. And this is the same situation over here, that all the evil that takes place amongst mankind and other than it is the result of the actions of mankind and is not a direct result of what Allah subhanaw taala created, right. So Allah subhana wa Jalla is free from all evil, but rather he allowed it to occur and it is not attributed to him. So now I following question which may occur from this is why would Allah subhanho wa Taala allow this evil to occur? The answer to this is clear. Firstly, it is due to the ultimate wisdom of Allah subhana wa Tada. If nobody Maha Maha Allah in the Quran Allah, he

00:14:02--> 00:14:12

mentions more than 30 reasons, or 30 wisdom behind why Allah subhanho wa Taala would allow evil to occur. Now let's just take the example of someone sitting.

00:14:13--> 00:14:35

When a person commits a sin let's just say he steals or commit Zina, right, Allah subhanho wa Taala allows this to occur right? Now why would Allah subhanho wa Taala allow this to occur? Because it is doing it is due to the occurring of sin, that people make Toba? And we know that Allah Subhana Allah loves Toba. Right?

00:14:36--> 00:14:50

So Allah subhanho wa Taala allowed his slaves to perform a sin, so that Toba may be deformed. And as a consequence of that, Allah subhanho wa Taala may also forgive. Right.

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

So this would necessitate that a person would have to commit sin, and would have to make Toba and this will necessitate that person would have to commit sin in order for us

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

panelist Allah to forgive. And likewise, when a person is in a trial or tribulation, who does he return to? He returns back to Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala loves that his slaves should turn back to him. Right? So these are just some of the wisdoms that if no claim Rahim Allah mentions as to why Allah subhanho wa Taala allows this evil to take place, or why Allah subhanaw taala allows them to take place, and how we need to understand that evil is never attributed to Allah, but rather it is a result of our own hands.

00:15:36--> 00:15:40

Now, that having been said, we have finished the first principle,

00:15:42--> 00:16:28

and that first principle, if you guys remember or not, but it states that a listener was gonna believe that everything in terms of individuals and their actions, falls under the four pillars of further being the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the writing of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the will of Allah subhana wa tada and the creation of Allah subhanaw taala. That was the first principle. So we have taken care of the first principle and the four pillars that we mentioned. Now we're going to move on to the second principle, the second principle states last hour that they know that you must be at the level of a healthy healing as it needed. What they know is that yes, I need

00:16:28--> 00:16:29

a better woman, she I see him.

00:16:31--> 00:16:47

And this principle states that there is no contradiction in affirming the will of Allah subhanaw taala and him creating the actions of his slaves, and between affirming the actions of the slaves and their free will.

00:16:48--> 00:17:18

Now what exactly do we mean by this? What we mean by this is that, as we know, Allah subhanho wa Taala has a word and mankind has the word, right? Allah Subhana Allah says mamatha una Illa Allah, meaning that the slave will not will anything except by the will of Allah subhana wa Tada. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is a firming a word for the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala, meaning that we have a word.

00:17:19--> 00:17:39

And the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala creates our actions, does not necessitate that. He is the one who forces us to do the actions, but rather, we're the ones who choose to do the action. So now, let us expand upon this a bit more.

00:17:41--> 00:17:58

After having stated the second point or the second principle, several questions may arise. Two of the most confusing of them is that how can we say that our actions are created, while knowing by necessity, that we are the ones who do them.

00:17:59--> 00:18:14

Like we mentioned yesterday, that Allah subhanho wa Taala creates, sometimes by medium, and sometimes without a medium. The example we gave yesterday was, let's take the example of

00:18:15--> 00:18:43

Allah Subhana Allah to Allah created us as a result of our parents getting together. Whereas if you look at the example of Adam alayhis, salam, Allah subhanho wa Taala created him without a medium meaning he was a direct result of Allah's creation that Allah subhana wa tada created him with his own hands, and he said v. And he was And likewise,

00:18:44--> 00:19:13

Allah subhanaw taala created the Sun and the Moon and the Earth. Likewise all in such a manner sometimes he creates with a medium and sometimes he creates without a medium. So this is how we understand that even though we are the ones who do the actions, Allah subhanaw taala still creates them, we are that medium, we are the medium for the actions that Allah subhana wa tada creates our actions with

00:19:14--> 00:19:30

another thing to understand and this is an important matter is how do we understand that Allah subhanho wa Taala creates our actions while we have free will in doing so.

00:19:31--> 00:19:36

And again, to facilitate this understanding. Let us take another example.

00:19:37--> 00:19:59

Now we will be taking the example of a carpenter. Let's just say this Carpenter is building a table. Okay. So he buys all the wood that he needs. He kills the wood, he paints the wood, cuts the wood in its appropriate size, and then tarnishes the wood and puts the overcoat on

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

On the table, and finally, he has that final product. Right, that final product being the table, while the actions that he did cause the table to be created. So now, Allah subhanho wa Taala has an action. And Allah subhanaw taala has a creation, and likewise, mankind has actions, and then he has the object of his actions.

00:20:29--> 00:20:43

Right. So in this particular example, Allah subhanho wa Taala, created the carpenter, he created all the tools that he used, he created all of the wood that was used.

00:20:45--> 00:20:54

And likewise, he created that final table. And Allah subhanaw taala created this table, through the medium of the carpenter. Right.

00:20:55--> 00:20:59

So now, one has to distinguish between actions,

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

and between the object of actions. So in this case, just like the carpenter, had the action, of painting, and cutting the wood, and all the other things that he did in terms of measuring and preparing to create the table, and the words being the action and the object of his actions. Likewise, Allah subhanho wa Taala created us and gave us the ability to choose what to do and what not to do. Right.

00:21:33--> 00:21:51

And then the object from our actions, is the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala, just as the medium was the object, just as the medium was the creation of Allah, and just as everything else was the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala as well.

00:21:52--> 00:22:47

So to relate this, on a more practical level. Let's take a more practical example. The example of Salah Allah subhana wa gyla ordered us with Salah, right, but it is up to us, whether we do it or not, is this not so? Indeed it is. So now, as we mentioned, Allah subhana wa Jalla has action, and then he has the object his action was creating, and then there is an object of his creation, right? Likewise we have actions, and then we have the object of our actions. And it is up to us what we do. So in the case of Salah, Allah subhanho, wa Taala orders us with Salah. Right? And it is up to us, whether we do it or not. If we do choose to do it, then even our action of Salah is created. Why?

00:22:48--> 00:23:42

Because Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, even though he created us and gave us the free will to do it or not. Allah subhana wa jal, an object of creation was the seller, through the process of us being created. And through the process of all our actions being created, then even its action of seller that we're doing is a creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala or what they call the object of creation, or what you would more particularly be known as the Messiah. Right? Allah subhanho wa Taala has a cell and a muscle, right and the Salah is the muscles of the cell. Now, to understand such a deep topic, to facilitate this understanding, we need to understand three key things. Right, and you

00:23:42--> 00:23:44

understand why we need to understand them in particular,

00:23:45--> 00:24:10

firstly, is that all actions that are done are attributed to the human being, that he is the one who actually does them in reality, even though there are occasional uttanasana He is the one who does them. Now the reasoning behind them and the reasoning behind this and the wisdom behind this is that it is due to this point that Allah subhanho wa Taala punishments and rewards

00:24:11--> 00:25:00

for had Allah subhanho wa Taala compelled us to do actions. How could Allah subhanho wa Taala justly rewarded and punished them. So it is due to this point, that Allah subhanho wa Taala rewards us and punishes us, as we are the ones who actually do the actions with our free will. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in total number, which is number 27. Iron number 90, hobo zona, Elana quantum Dharma noon, that will you be rewarded except for that which you used to do. So the action over here is attributed to the human being. And based upon that action that we do, Allah subhanaw taala will constantly evolve content were compensated adequately good for good and bad for

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

That, and Allah subhanho wa Taala also says and still does not ADA, I 164 while ATAK sibelco lunasin en la liga, and every soul shall be compensated for that which it used to do. Right. And likewise, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in other is

00:25:21--> 00:25:44

a lesson, that the will reward of doing good is nothing but good. And what we understand from this ayah is that the compensation for doing that is likewise punishment. Right. So, this is the first point we need to understand and understanding the actions of the creation of Allah subhanaw taala of the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala and how we relate freewill into it.

00:25:45--> 00:26:17

Point number two is that the slave has a free work and the decision and an option to do what he likes. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in certain Muslim in semenza at De La Ilaha Biggie sarila right, whoever wishes can take a test to his Lord, right. So Allah subhanho wa Taala or from a free will for the human being. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says also in Soto batara I 223 to have the come

00:26:19--> 00:27:10

and come to your tails in any manner that is pleasing to you in any manner that you will like. So Allah subhanaw taala again is affirming for men, free will, but is this will have meant alternate and unlimited. Obviously not we are decreasing the last time it was either and like whites were limited to the boundaries and laws that Allah subhana wa Jalla set for us. And this is seen in the ayah in the is of certain incense, and with a certain number 76 is 29 and 30 Well, lots of tiny ones Allah says Samantha Jaffa in Arabic Isa de la Masha una Illa Allah in Allaha, Kenya alima Sakina Allah subhana wa Jalla says, So whoever wills amongst you can take a path to his Lord, and He will

00:27:10--> 00:27:30

not will accept by that which Allah has willed, Indeed Allah is the most knowledgeable and the most wise. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is restricting our will, to His will, that nothing will take place from our world, except that Allah subhanho wa Taala had willed it before us.

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

So this is how we reconcile the second point that mankind does have will, but it is not absolute and unlimited, but rather it is limited by the boundaries and laws of Allah subhanaw taala

00:27:46--> 00:28:00

and the third point is that Allah subhana wa Jalla has given us capabilities and ability, right? Obviously, this is like the second point that it is not limited.

00:28:01--> 00:28:49

So either that it is limited and our capabilities are only in according to what Allah subhana wa Jalla has granted us. Right? Allah subhanho wa Taala says such a for Mohammed Stata that Allah subhanho wa Taala says and fear Allah as much as you are able to write. And likewise, Allah subhana wa tada says, in certain facilities, our amuro and Allah Allah the halaqa, whom who assert domain hamakua that Have you not seen that Allah is the one who created them, and he is stronger than them in strength. Right? So let's I know Dan is affirming strength and capability for the creation of Allah subhanaw taala. Yet Allah subhanaw taala is much, much more stronger, and is much much more

00:28:49--> 00:29:43

capable than me as his creation. Because Likewise, the creation of Allah subhanaw taala is limited in its capability and ability, while massive Hana with the added ability and power, they know no limits, right. And likewise, and understanding this point as well. We have to understand that the coda which is given to mankind, that the ability to do actions for us, it needs to be supported with two other things. One is the will and help of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we cannot do anything except by his will and his help. And secondly, that Allah subhanho wa Taala has to alleviate all impediments that may take place prior to this action. Like the example being, I want to become an

00:29:43--> 00:29:59

engineer with Allah subhanho wa Taala Heidi woods, he couldn't have taught me the knowledge of engineering adverse, but this is not the case or not the sake of Allah panels Allah created for us, our education, you know, you have to learn it in order to achieve

00:30:00--> 00:30:42

See if that education, so becoming an engineer, I would have to go to school, I would have to attend university and attend those specialized classes. Right. So had it not been for the topic of Allah subhanho wa Taala and had Allah subhanho wa Taala not alleviated the impediment of me going to school, and me being able to learn and other than that, I would not be able to become an engineer. So these are two things that are related, that even though Allah Subhana Allah gives us the ability to things have to take place, in order in order for us to use that ability and to perform an action unless I know what to avoid Jalla the will and help. And then secondly, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:30:42--> 00:30:48

alleviating and removing all impediments that prevent us from doing that action.

00:30:49--> 00:31:01

And finally, we move on to the third point or the third principle, which states Yeah, jump into I had a student that he was in and then he Daya will oblige via delay

00:31:02--> 00:31:30

for Jolla de Manya. Nia marcelinho, formula oil, Romania, sir, take my son Minho. Allah, that Allah sooner was Gemma believes that guidance and its guidance, or with Allah subhanho wa Taala. He guides who he wills as a favor, and as a blessing. And he makes guides whom He wills out of his wisdom and out of justice.

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

So let us take the first point pertaining to the guidance.

00:31:36--> 00:32:29

Allah Subhana Allah guides whom He wills from his mate, Allah subhana wa Jalla says into a unit ID number 25 will model Yahoo Eli daddy Selim demon yetta lftr awesome stuff in that Allah subhana wa Jalla is the one who calls to the abode of peace and he is the one who guides to the straight path. So we have to understand here that guidance is totally from Allah Subhana Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who has ultimate guidance, and he is the one who chooses who is guided and who is misguided. Likewise, Allah subhana wa dynafit. Leah had the level for who in my study, that whoever Allah subhanho wa Taala guides them he is the one who is guided right? Then Allah subhana wa Jalla

00:32:29--> 00:32:43

also says, as I mentioned, as I mentioned, Allah who said that a hole in Islam, that there is no Allah not the one who expanded or extend his text to explain it he said to accept Islam.

00:32:44--> 00:32:59

So Allah subhana wa tada in these is as diverse as they may be. They all alluded to the same point that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who guides so Allah subhana wa Jalla bestows guidance upon whom he was from his slave.

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

Point number two, that this specification or Allah Subhana was added, choosing whom He guides

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

is not

00:33:13--> 00:33:45

something that the slave deserves, but rather it is something that Allah subhanho wa Taala does out of a favor and out of blessing for the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala right. So none of us had any rights upon Allah subhanaw taala meaning that we cannot say we deserve to be guided, but rather any guidance that we may receive is purely out of blessing and favor from Allah subhana wa to Allah. Allah subhana wa Allah says in Surah Baqarah 105

00:33:46--> 00:34:26

vs mighty manga while love was only fatherly loving, and likewise, Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Al Hadid is number 29. Well, another popular dia de la de manera de la was unfortunately again that Allah subhanho wa Taala incompetence is mercy upon whom he will and Allah is the one who has the greater good and loving is when Allah and Allah subhana wa Jalla says, and the second is that we mentioned that indeed all good and benevolence is when Allah He gives it to whom he pleases, and Allah is the one who pressed who

00:34:28--> 00:34:56

owns and possesses the greater good are all go oh goodness. So this is the second point that the guidance that Allah Subhana Allah blesses us with. And number 10 was Allah grant is guiding and continuous with guidance and allow us to die upon guidance. It is in the hands of Allah and he gives it to whom he will write and it is a blessing and a favor from Allah subhanho wa Taala and none of us actually deserve it.

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

Now, point number three potential

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

To the guidance of Allah subhanho wa Taala this certification of whom Allah subhanho wa Taala chooses to bless with his guidance returns to his knowledge and to his wisdom.

00:35:13--> 00:36:00

Okay, this is very important to understand how Allah subhanho wa Taala chooses to guide a person is relevant and pertaining to Allah subhana wa dalot infinite knowledge and wisdom and there is one ayah in the Quran that encompasses all these three points that we mentioned above that Allah Subhana Allah guides whom He was being point number one, point number two, that guidance is a blessing and favor from Allah. And point number three, the guidance returns or the point the reason Allah, Allah guide people is due to his infinite knowledge. And due to his infinite wisdom, Allah, Allah says in total fidelity is seven and eight. When I came to La Habra de la cama de man it was a yena houfy

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

Hotel become wakawaka ecoman preferable for su COVID Ola eco murase don't problem Nino la una La la la Lehman Hakeem

00:36:12--> 00:37:10

so lots of Hana data, says indies is but it is Allah who has made the love it to you, and has beautified it in your heart and has made you dislike, disbelief, Nexus and disobedience. Those are the people who are missing who are like to be guided. This is a blessing from Allah and a favor from him. And indeed Allah is our name and Hakeem meaning the most knowledgeable and the most wise. So from the first part of the ayah we see that Allah subhanho wa Taala has instilled guidance in US meaning that he has made guidance, beloved to us. Right and has made us dislike disbelief and for so committing mischief and evil doing and you'll see and meaning disobedience, okay. So Allah subhanho

00:37:10--> 00:37:14

wa Taala He is the one who guides me This is totally his decision.

00:37:15--> 00:38:00

Point number two problem in Allah He whenever that this is a tamer, I save it from Allah subhanho wa Taala and a blessing. This is point number two that we mentioned. And point number three are some Hana machala ends of the I have I think, while mahali makina Allah is the most knowledgeable and he has the most wise, meaning that his guidance and him choosing who he blesses with the savor or blessing of guidance, is returning to his knowledge and to his wisdom. So Allah guides whom He pleases, and he makes a man beloved to whom he pleases, and this is truly a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, this is something to understand.

00:38:01--> 00:38:02

Now,

00:38:03--> 00:38:13

the blessing of guidance, it has two things that need to be expanded upon or two ways for it and inshallah we will discuss this in detail now.

00:38:15--> 00:38:36

So now who Allah subhana wa Jalla chooses to guide and whom Allah subhana wa Jalla blesses with guidance. There are two points to it as well. Right? That Allah subhanho wa Taala he gives guidance to those people who are, you know, deserving of it of you if you could say that, as they say

00:38:37--> 00:39:28

that they have some sort of, you know, taking it obviously it is a purely a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. But Allah subhana wa Jalla gives it to those people who he thinks are befitting of it, right? So this is the first point that needs to be understood. Secondly, Allah subhanho wa Taala gives guidance to those people or facilitate guidance or those people who do righteous deeds and want goodness as well. Allah Subhana Allah says, In surah Mohammed is anything of the sutra number 47 voisine dozer, the home Huda home taqwa home. Allah subhana wa Tada. He said and those people who sought the guidance, then Allah increase them in guidance and granted them their taqwa

00:39:28--> 00:39:59

that Allah subhana wa Tada. He saw that this group of people want a guiding light and so he included increased to them in guidance. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala granted them taqwa as well. And then Allah subhanaw taala says, in total and file, Anya 29 Yeah, Johann levena am I know in a coma? I love him for that. Oh, you who believe. If you feel alone and have Taqwa of him, then Allah will grant you a four part meaning a criterion c

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

To distinguish evil from good And likewise, Allah subhanho wa Taala says until it

00:40:07--> 00:40:15

is 70 and 71 yeah you're Latina M and o tecoma loco loco danza de de la from Morocco.

00:40:16--> 00:41:00

So we see that Allah subhanho wa Jalla he will compensate and compensate good for good. So those people who take the first step towards guidance, Allah subhanaw taala will grant them guidance and it is seen from the three is that we mentioned particularly in the first one that those people who sought to be guided, Allah will guide them and granted them taqwa as well. And then in the second ayah, Allah subhana wa tada says, all you who believe if you feel alone have Taqwa of him, he will grant you a criteria, meaning that he will give you the ability to distinguish between good and evil in between right and wrong. And then in the left Daya, the IR filter Allah, Allah says, all you who

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

believe have Taqwa of Allah, and say a straightforward speech. And if you do this, then is the result of this. Allah will rectify your affairs. So guidance, even though it is purely a blessing from Allah subhana wa tada and he gives it to whom he pleases Allah Subhana. Allah will facilitate it will facilitate it for those people who take the first step. If you take the first step towards guidance, and you feel less of Hannah Montana, and you do those deeds, that our beloved and pleasing to Allah Subhana Allah, then Allah will increase you in email.

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

Now, as for the second topic of our discussion on the opposite of guidance, which is misguided, then there are several points related to this as well.

00:41:49--> 00:41:57

Point number one, that Allah subhanho wa Taala is capable of Miss guiding whom he pleases.

00:41:58--> 00:42:44

Right? Allah subhana wa tada says, in total natural eye number 36. So mean human head, Allah will mean home man hubpage aleja balada that Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, and from them are those who Allah guided and from them or those who miss guidance fell upon on this guidance was, you know, they were deserving, or misguided. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, My ob Allahu Allah had the Allah in total out of I 186 that whoever Allah subhana wa Jalla misguides then there is no guide for him. And Allah subhanaw taala also says in total and an ayah number 39

00:42:45--> 00:42:46

mania sha Allah

00:42:47--> 00:42:53

that Allah Subhan Allah subhanaw taala you know wishes to misguide, then he just saw.

00:42:54--> 00:43:40

So, from this ayah we see that Allah subhanaw taala is clearly capable of Miss guiding the people. So Allah subhanho wa Taala he needs to guide home he pleases. Now one thing to understand is that when Allah subhanho wa Taala he wishes misguidance for a person, right? That no one can guide him except Allah subhanaw taala meaning that you know, when Allah subhanaw taala has witnessed guidance for a person and it has allowed a person to a straight then the only person or the one the only one who can guide again, is Allah subhanho wa Taala alone.

00:43:41--> 00:43:57

And this is an important point to understand. Point number two relating to miss guidance is that Miss Miss Miss guidance, or this guy or miss guide, though this guidance at all times it takes away from the people. It's purely related to justice from him.

00:43:58--> 00:44:50

Right? And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala he made clear both paths, the paths to good and evil. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala sent the messages so that so he's maybe known from sick and white maybe known from wrong. And this is likewise why Allah subhanho wa Taala sent the book. So that would his beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala may be known, and that which isn't beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala may likewise be known. Right? So Allah subhanho wa Taala He guides whom whom He guides who he works out purely out of justice, that those who are misguided or deserving of this mighty misguidance. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, into an ayah 149 or sallallahu taala deliver

00:44:50--> 00:45:00

and then say that Allah subhanho wa Taala has the ultimate proof or the ultimate placing of proof and Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

Allah says, In Surah Nisa I 165 or Sudan mobis Irina woman during the Allah Yoko Nora nirjala Maha Jabba Rasul

00:45:11--> 00:45:44

that messenger Allah subhana wa Jalla sent as wanted and give us a blood tidings so that mankind may have no proof or no play of proof after the descent of the messengers, and likewise Allah subhana wa tada says, In sorbitol incense in Medina, who studied in Morocco was a metaphor that we have guided them to the past. Either they are thankful, or either they are with just four. Right. And likewise, the last panel, Jonathan and

00:45:45--> 00:46:01

I in number 10, will have a now another thing that we have guided him to the peak of the two paths, meaning the peak of guidance and the peak of misguided and it is up to the slave to you know, embark upon guidance on this guidance.

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

Right.

00:46:04--> 00:46:29

So now, one has to understand that when one takes the first step, Allah subhanho wa Taala, will compensate him for that first step. So whoever takes that first step towards good, then Allah subhanaw taala, will facilitate good for him. And wherever it takes that first step towards evil, then Allah subhanaw taala likewise, will compensate him for that evil as well.

00:46:30--> 00:46:43

So the first step towards misguidance is the slave choosing misguidance for himself. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala he mentions in various verses of the Quran,

00:46:44--> 00:47:10

an example being into the Zohar of our final dynasties into a number 76 Well, now the alumni are home, when I can can go home. avani means that we did not oppress them, but rather it is nine times while you're pressing, meaning that mankind is the one who chooses misguidance for himself, that he takes that first step towards misguidance. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala allows them to stray.

00:47:12--> 00:47:15

So this is an important point to keep in mind.

00:47:16--> 00:47:20

Another important point to keep in mind is that

00:47:22--> 00:48:12

this nice guidance is out of the wisdom of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and Allah subhanho wa Taala will not place misguidance exept except to those people who are deserving of it. Right? And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala he always tells us about those people who own Yama, Yama, they will be asked to return to this dunya Allah subhanaw taala won't allow them to return to this dunya because he knows that had they been allowed to return, they still would have continued with them. So it is out of the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he allows a group to stray and because they are deserving of it. So it is related to the justice of Allah subhanaw taala as well as his wisdom.

00:48:13--> 00:48:58

And the last point we need to understand in terms of this guidance is that misguidance is the punishment from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this punishment is for two things. The first is that the initial rejection of Eman it is a punishment for the initial rejection of Eman as Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Anam ii 110 one aka Ada Tahoma before whom can I mute me? No biggie Oh, what Amala and that we turned to their hearts and their sight, like they didn't believe the first time sequel descended into Neo Rahim Allah. He mentioned in majority Salah volume number eight, paid 224 for

00:49:00--> 00:49:02

your punto de Mundo meno de la llamada

00:49:04--> 00:49:04

de man

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

that

00:49:07--> 00:49:55

limits me or him Allah, he mentioned that Allah mentioned the changing or the obtaining of the hearts. It was due to them not believing the first time they were called to emerge. And so this is not to them not believing the first time they were called to image and this is a lack or deficiency or non existence of image. So when Allah subhana wa Jalla calls a people to email and the people don't accept email, out of their own will and accord, then this is the first punishment that Allah Subhana Allah gives them that he must guide to them. Right. And then the second punishment of why misguidance takes place is them having a natural will or so is them not having a natural but then

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

inclining self inclining towards the open

00:50:00--> 00:50:34

Following of the desire and following this belief, right? Allah subhanho wa Taala says, to follow the hemara bone such as the Houma la mirada that in their hearts with a disease. So Allah subhanho wa Taala increased them in the disease and like like almost kind of dinosaurs and so, Joseph, Fernanda who azova mokulua home and when they took the first step towards misguidance, meaning they followed a path other than the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala then this is when Allah subhana wa Jalla deviated their their hearts.

00:50:35--> 00:50:53

And likewise, Allah subhanaw taala says in total apostasy and it's a very scary if Indeed, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Can la de la la la la Colombe him, now I can with Simone that it does, a verse was built upon their hearts a result of what they used to do.

00:50:54--> 00:51:39

So every action that we do, affects our guidance and misguidance those days that we do, which are good, Allah subhanho wa Taala will compensate us with guidance and reward. And those deeds that we do, there are displeasing to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, then Allah subhanho wa Taala not only compensated with punishment, but he takes away guidance from us as well. And how scary of a thought that is to turn on the hill again, and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to keep us upon guidance at all times, and to protect us from Miss guidance at all times. Now, this is the ending of the chapter of God. And just two last points, I would like to expand on these nilla huhtala.

00:51:40--> 00:51:45

Point number one is the relationship between asking and further.

00:51:47--> 00:52:37

You know, if everything is destined for, then why do we need to do the action? Right? The answer to this is that Allah subhanho wa Taala has ordered us to do actions, and then to rely upon the color of Allah subhanho wa Taala as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, as seen in the Hadith, narrated by the Polish or the Allahu taala and hope that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said nothing communist in India for the early Mandela agenda he would not call we are a pseudo law. funny man, not a man. Tequila called Lula Emmylou Saku Maria, Nina Hoda, Paula some salmon and our Baba tapa was adopted, in a cozy he certainly has to hold and

00:52:39--> 00:53:22

so on even a dettol rajala, who died and who he nearly told me pocket sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that there is not a soul, except that it is known where it's placed will be in gender and enough. So the companions or their loved ones on on whom they asked the Prophet sallallahu send them the other similar love. Why do we do action? Should we not just put our choice, but rather, but then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responded, no, but rather for every point, but rather do actions or do the appropriate actions. And then you will see that Allah subhanho wa Taala, he will facilitate

00:53:23--> 00:54:11

for that which he was created for, meaning that anyone who is created for gender will do the actions of gender. And anyone who was created for jahannam will do the actions of Johanna. Right. So the relationship between Ashin and the other, is that you need to do the action. For that, for that ending, which you're seeking. Like, if you want, let's just say, to have a big house, right? This requires money. And in order for you to obtain money, you have to work. You can't just sit, you know, wherever you are thinking that Allah knows Allah will grant you a house, even though that this is capable for less than $1. This is not the cycle that he created for mankind. In order for him to

00:54:11--> 00:54:49

achieve anything, he had to he has to do action. Right. So those people who sit at home and say that their risk will come to them, even though there is some truth to it. And unless panels Allah is capable of doing this, I pushed him still had to go out and seek as ever. How about when we are hungry? Do we say that Allah subhanho wa Taala will feed us? Or do we still come to our desire for food and actually go and find something to eat? That's our risk as well. We have to go out and search for our risk. And likewise, you know, you want to have children, you can't think that all that kind of data will just have children fall from the sky, but rather you have to take the

00:54:49--> 00:54:59

appropriate measures to help those children. And this is from the wisdom of Islam, that Islam encourages people to do their actions in addition to

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

require them to be late doesn't require or even request them to be lazy, but rather is required to require from them to be enthusiastic and to do those good deeds, or to do those deeds, which we needed to achieve the end result. And this is what our colleagues, as the companion

00:55:19--> 00:55:45

was really focused on Mohan Insomniac and Jada Subala. I have my camera today just put my trust in it and leave a tweet, or should I tie it, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, tie it and then put the trust in Allah. So the first step is taking the appropriate measures, and then putting your trust in Allah to fulfill his end of the bargain in granting you that which you desire. And this is why we see that after such

00:55:46--> 00:56:17

occurrences with the prophets of Allah, how you see them, meaning after mentioning such a Hadith, and such statements, that we find that the companions, they said, I was never more enthusiastic, I have never been more enthusiastic and performing my actions as I was after this, because I know that anything I was created for that Allah subhanho wa Taala was facilitated for me. So this is what we need to understand that in order to obtain anything and achieve anything, we have to do the action. So

00:56:18--> 00:56:22

if you want to memorize the Quran, take the first step by learning how to read the Quran.

00:56:23--> 00:56:49

If you want to have, you know, wealth, they know that you have to work and earn your worth, it will not just come to you. So this is the first point I want to expand upon. And the last point I want to expand upon without getting into too much detail, are those two groups or two major groups that deviated in terms of just to give, you know, one or two sentences about them, because it is important to know who they are.

00:56:51--> 00:56:54

The first group that deviated in terms of SCADA

00:56:55--> 00:57:41

is the father ear. And what they said was, obviously, there were two types of Kataria but the father was army existing and our times today are those group of people that said that there is no further meaning that there is no pre destiny, that almost kind of data doesn't predestined anything, but rather we have freewill and how far they are from the truth. Because if one were to study, you know, these four pillars that we mentioned, and the three principles that we mentioned, along with all the proof, we'll see that indeed, there is free will, and there is free destiny as well. And this is only perfect creation of Allah subhanaw taala. And it was the actual group that was mentioned in the

00:57:41--> 00:58:15

Hadith of the trees, which is mentioned in the overseas equip Hadith in Sahih. Muslim that we mentioned earlier on, that this was the group that was being referred to, but the deviants that took place at that time was that they actually negated the future knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala. They claim that Allah subhanaw taala will not know the future until it occurs. And obviously this is attributing deficiency, to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and attributing lack of knowledge and a lack of wisdom to China with Allah. And this is what actually caused them to be

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

taken out of the fold of Islam. And obviously, there's a lot of discussion about this. But this is not the place to discuss it in. Maybe in a future gathering, we can discuss this group in further detail and look at what your arguments are and then find ways on how to refute them. Now, last panelist, Allah facilitate that for us, as well the second group that deviated in terms of other than they are the jabariya. And they are the people who say that there is nothing but free destiny, meaning that there is nothing but further, that we are compelled to do everything and we have no free will. So they are the exact opposite of the principle and likewise, how far they are from the

00:58:58--> 00:59:41

truth as well. Right? That Indeed, we know that if I want to raise my hand right now, I can raise my hand if I want to put it down, I can put it down Allah, Allah granted me this free will and where they went wrong is distinguishing between the free will and between the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala and him and him Allah Spanos Allah allowing us to do the actions that we want. So likewise, you know, they have their arguments and their proofs or what they call for service and inshallah maybe in a future gathering, if Allah subhanaw taala facilitated for us, we can discuss what their arguments are, and how they can be refuted. But generally, if one were to take these four pillars,

00:59:42--> 00:59:59

and three principles that we mentioned, then all the arguments can be refuted. Because once you build a genuine foundation of the belief of God, and the sooner you just keep referring to that, and it's very easy to refute all the attacks that come towards that listener attempt.

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

arcada

01:00:01--> 01:00:20

so with that with the fight, and likewise any good that has said is from Allah, Allah and His Sophia, and anything that I have heard in is from my own deficiency and from the whispers of faith on Apollo kolyada was Dr. Allah Allah Allah komolika is Muslim and I'm in Poland for sofiero
