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

Now the next thing is, it's going to be technical, but I'm gonna make it. You're gonna learn some things about English I guess. Because I can't teach you Arabic right now. So I'm going to try to teach them English. Which you already know what I'm good at law Alhamdulillah. Okay.

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

So there's a difference between nouns and verbs. I know that sounds really scary and some of you want to run away right now. Remain calm. I'm not going to bring in your fourth year English teacher from childhood. Remain calm. There's a difference between what again, what did I say? nouns and verbs. Okay? Give me an example of nouns.

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

Give me an example of a noun. Not Definition Examples.

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

Nobody knows what a melon is.

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

Huh?

00:01:06--> 00:01:10

Sure, Hall chair. speech. Microphone

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

will starve.

00:01:14--> 00:01:15

Right? confusion,

00:01:17--> 00:01:27

nervousness. These are all nouns. Yes. So it could be a person, a place a thing, an idea, etc, etc. Right? Okay, what's that? Give me a verb.

00:01:29--> 00:01:33

Walking, sleeping. I'm kidding. Okay.

00:01:34--> 00:01:49

Talking, left, came back, etc, etc. Yes. Okay. Now I'll put it to you a certain way. nouns don't have past tense, or present tense, or future tense. And Apple is unknown.

00:01:50--> 00:02:13

Apple is not past tense. It's not present tense. It's not features in it. So what am I saying a noun is timeless. You with me? a noun is what? timeless but when you have a verb, ate, or eating, or will eat, then it definitely has either past or present or future which is really hard to understand and believe because you guys have one tense for everything.

00:02:14--> 00:02:17

I'm trying to learn and, man.

00:02:19--> 00:02:22

I mean, it's good that I less things to memorize, I guess you know.

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

I'll share some broken mulay with you later. inshallah.

00:02:27--> 00:02:45

But anyway, so when you say a verb, then it has to be in time. And when you say a noun, then it is what? timeless? You with me so far? That's one difference. I want you to remember one more difference. There's two differences I want you to remember. Okay, here's the one of them was that it's once timeless and the other is limited by time.

00:02:47--> 00:02:51

The other difference? Is that a verb? You need someone to do it.

00:02:53--> 00:03:32

If I say eight, that's not enough. You have to tell me who ate? If I say slept is not enough. You have to tell me? Who's somebody has to do the act of sleeping? Yes. You need someone to do a verb. a verb does not happen on its own. It needs someone to do it. But what about a noun like apple? You don't say who did it. You don't have to. An Apple does not need a Dewar. It is independent. Now there are two differences. You remind me what is the first difference between a noun and a verb a noun is timeless, and it's independent. It doesn't need someone to do it. What about a verb? What are the two qualities?

00:03:34--> 00:03:45

It's temporary. Let's just say it's temporary. It's limited to time either past or present or future it's not timeless and what else it needs to do. Now let's go back to the Why am I giving you this crazy lesson?

00:03:46--> 00:03:50

The phrase we're discussing is Alhamdulillah.

00:03:51--> 00:04:13

How did you translate 100? Allah how do we translate it together? There were two words in English praise and things belong to Allah. Now tell me about the words praise and thanks, is praise a noun or a verb? This is a hard question. By the way, I accept that it's a hard question. I want you to think about it. Maybe even discuss it with the neighbor before you embarrass yourself.

00:04:14--> 00:04:19

And then tell me praise and thanks. Is that a noun? Or a verb?

00:04:22--> 00:04:30

There no, no, no. I want one answer. I want mine. Oh, mine. Oh, there's someone's shot for us. We're gonna say something and 100 he's gonna do something else. No, no, no. Oh, one answer.

00:04:32--> 00:04:33

What do you think?

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

noun?

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

How do you use a noun? verb?

00:04:44--> 00:04:45

It's a noun.

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

Ah,

00:04:49--> 00:04:50

let me tell you why it's a noun.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

Apple is a noun I told you. A thing is a noun. A place is a noun, right? A person is a noun.

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

But an idea is also a noun.

00:05:03--> 00:05:19

Islam is a noun. Patience is a noun. praises a noun thanks is a noun. Knowledge is a noun, you understand? Because now, what was the difference I told you to remember? Let's go back. Let's see if you understand this properly. What was the difference? I told you nouns have two things, what are they?

00:05:21--> 00:06:06

They're independent and they don't have. They don't have they're independent. They don't have a doer and they're timeless. And what about verbs they have time. And you have to have a noun when you say, Thanks, belongs to a law. The idea of things I love Thanks. Thanks itself is not past tense, present tense or future it's timeless. The moment you say that it's timeless, it becomes a what becomes a noun, you understand. Now the point now here's the reason we did all of this crazy stuff, like we're spot on. He's talking about nouns and verbs and thanks and praise and let's go back. Why are we talking about this because the word I used was a noun. Yes. Alhamdulillah is a noun, belongs to a

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

lot. a noun belongs to a lot, as opposed to using what?

00:06:11--> 00:06:58

a verb. Now let me tell you what a verb would have been. Mandala. Mandala. ethmoidal. I'll give you three options. I praise Allah. I praise and thank Allah when I said that, who's the Dewar? I am and what tense did I use? I praise and thank Allah, what tense they use the past tense of the present tense or the future tense. I use the present tense. When I say we praise a lot, what tense did I use? We praise Allah right now. And who's the Dewar? We are, when I command you praise Allah. Then who's supposed to be the Dewar? You are? Yes. Now let me tell you something. Allah chose a a noun. And he refused to use a verb, even though when you listen to the hot verb, before right before you

00:06:58--> 00:07:05

go to sleep. In the candelilla Nakamoto, who want to start you know who wanna

00:07:09--> 00:07:14

when you say no to who, actually what the hottie was saying is we praise Him.

00:07:16--> 00:07:29

Him belongs to Allah, we praise Him. Allah does not say we praise Allah. Allah says, praise belongs to Allah. Now what? What difference does it make you know what difference it makes? It means that the praise of Allah is timeless.

00:07:30--> 00:07:44

Because if you put it in a verb, it would have been either past tense or present tense or future tense. And if you said, I praise Allah, then that means it's happening right now. But it's no proof that it was happening in the past, and there's no guarantee it will happen in the future.

00:07:45--> 00:07:56

So first of all, by using Alhamdulillah, Allah made his praise What? timeless? Remember nouns are what? timeless, but what else are nouns? nouns are not only timeless, what else are they?

00:07:57--> 00:08:00

They don't need a Tony to do.

00:08:01--> 00:08:09

So by using Alhamdulillah, Allah is telling you and me that he doesn't need you to do the praise.

00:08:10--> 00:08:51

Because there is no I praise Allah because if I don't exist, then it won't. a verb won't happen. If I don't, I'm not there. If I say we praise Allah, or even if you said everything praises a lot, then it depends on everything because there's a Dewar. But a law does not need anyone to do his praise. He doesn't need anyone to do his praise. He's independent, but well, honey will Hamid is praised in and of himself, in and of himself. And so he captures his lack of need to be praised in just Alhamdulillah. So when people ask the question, why does Allah want me to praise him? Why does God want me to pray to Him and praise Him and thank him? You don't know Quran Do you? Because it started

00:08:51--> 00:09:15

with the fact that he doesn't need it. He started with Alhamdulillah it already answered that question. Their question doesn't even exist anymore. Just because we say what Alhamdulillah now imagine, there are places in the Quran where Allah commands you. Or Buddha, or Buddha Taku have Taqwa, you know, worship, etc. But he doesn't say much praise.

00:09:17--> 00:09:44

Now, when you say to someone praise or eat, or drink, or sleep, etc, when you give a command, then you know what that is, right? There's only two things that can happen. If I tell someone do something, there are only two possibilities. Either they will do it or they won't do it. Isn't that the case? Like if I have children, and if I tell my daughters get me a glass of water, there's only two things that can happen. Either she will get me a glass of water or she will get me a glass of water. Those will be only two possibilities.

00:09:45--> 00:09:51

But realistically, if Allah tells me and he tells us to have Taqwa

00:09:53--> 00:09:54

that we always have Taqwa.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

He told us to have that what we do we always have Taqwa. know sometimes we have

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

And sometimes we know if he says if medu praise, then praise would exist or praise and thanks will exist when we do it. And it will not exist when we don't do it or when we're unaware or heedless. So he did not issue a command. Because when you issue a command, whether or not it will happen is in the other court. The ball is in your court, not with Allah. He does not need you or depend on you or wait on you for him to exist. It's already there in and of itself.
