Xena, Amman armadyl slightly hurt both of us will be happy but also the sub i mean, me. Today inshallah I will try to share with you some reflections from Salt assura. That's the 42nd surah of the Quran. And this is I really what I'm going to try to talk to you about are some things from iron number 14. Though this passage on its own, if you were to look at it as a passage will be 1314 and 15. These are three long I art that make one cohesive argument. I'll tell you some things about iron number 13, even though that's not the subject of the football today, and that is that Allah talks about how he has given the same guidance and the same way of living to all of the previous prophets.

00:03:01--> 00:03:38

There are some more details in some, you know, shehryar that was given to some profits and less in some others. But fundamentally, these are all you can think of it as these are all fruits from the same tree. So profits were not given different teachings. It's the exact same fundamental core teachings beliefs, values, ethics, that were given to new honey Salaam under the lake are the same that was given to you. When I was a woman was in a behavioral Hema with Lisa musawah Risa and whatever we counsel table Rahim musona Nisa, and Hakim would deem that you live and you stand by the deen and you establish it and you don't fall into division regarding it, there are some fundamental

00:03:38--> 00:04:17

things that were given to us now. So Allah is saying one of the most basic teachings of our religion, we're actually not to fall into, and not be obsessed with disagreements, not to become obsessed and separate yourself because of disagreements without that the Federal COVID don't become divided groups within. In this next I Allah then mentions a tragedy and he uses the pronoun home, which means they will not refer Rocco, that's the past tense, referring to the word they but we don't know who the noun for that is. And the reason for that is nation after nation from previous profits ended up making the same kind of mistake. So Allah sent prophets to different nations,

00:04:17--> 00:04:53

different cultures, different languages, different centuries, right. So life looks different in one century to another. The world looks different from one century to another world, the society looks different from one culture to another. But regardless of cultural differences in different, you know, areas of history, human beings have certain kinds of behavior, and they repeat that kind of behavior. So even though we are driving vehicles that have much more modern technology than people that were, you know, taking rides in vehicles 100 years ago, they had much more basic technology that we do, right, we may be wearing clothes that are different from what they wore. We may have

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

houses and luxuries that they never had. So life and the city you live in maybe the same city. They

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

But 500 years ago, it didn't look the same, right? So the world looked very different. But there are some things about human behavior, whether it was 1000 years ago, or it's today, or it's going to be 500 years from now, the same behaviors repeat themselves. And so some things advance over time, some things become, you know, they evolve, technology evolves, language evolves, right, human knowledge evolves, our ability, our lifestyles evolve, luxuries evolve, but there are some things that remain fundamentally the same. And there are some aspects of human behavior are, you know, right and wrong stays the same. What Allah said was right at the time of no Holly Salaam, and what was wrong at the

00:05:41--> 00:06:18

time of new Hyundai Salaam is still right and wrong. It hasn't changed. So between New Hyundai Salaam, and the Prophet Muhammad Ali salam, there are 1000s of years, and Allah says you've been given the same exact teaching, right? The same exact principles for architecture have expired, the same exact principles for medicine have expired, they're no longer applicable with the world moved on. But principles, right and wrong ethics teachings, that the millennia the things that we believe in, they haven't changed, they've stayed exactly the same. But on the other side, there's something else that stayed exactly the same. So this one, the first time I had number 13, was about the

00:06:18--> 00:06:56

teachings of Allah that have always been the same. But then the tragedy is human mistakes have also been the same. With we keep falling into the same traps over and over again, you know, like, it's it, you may have heard the expression you learn from your own mistakes or learn from somebody else's mistakes. Well, it seems like people we don't learn from the mistakes of others, we repeat the same exact mistakes again, and again, and again and again. And another way Allah describes that in the Quran is in Santa Luffy hustle, right, the human beings have, you know, are in loss, and they've always been in loss. And the same loss that happened with somebody who suffered from greed, or

00:06:56--> 00:07:34

jealousy, or, you know, low self esteem or pride that lived 1000 years ago, maybe they may have had a prior they may have had proud or probably behavior, probably behavior because of the house they lived in, or the hut they lived in, or the donkey that they had, who can't, who knows. And now you've got somebody who's got pride in their Ferrari or whatever else, right? So the things that you have pride in have changed, your pride is still pride. And they feel in the same exact way. So this is one of those failures that Allah is going to describe now, that is pretty scary. It's this is a failure of people who know, Islam. This is a failure of those who follow profits. This is not people

00:07:34--> 00:08:00

who don't know anything about Islam. These are people who know about Islam, and are even have even learned about their religion. So and to qualify what I'm going to say to make this inshallah the teachings of this Baba, easy to remember, I want you to think of people who follow Islam in two basic categories. Okay? Even though there's lots of categories, we're going to divide them into two very basic categories. There are people who follows

00:08:01--> 00:08:38

that, try to learn something about it, or have learned something about it. Right. So either as a child, they were taught some things about their religion, or they went to a religious education, or they went to a madrasa or they went to, you know, whatever, you know, they learn from the scholar, they learn from their parents, they memorize some things, right, they learn the rules and regulations. And so they have some education in Islam. And there are also a huge population of people that follow Islam that believe in profits that have had practically no education in Islam. What they know about Islam is very little to nothing. They know, at the most, they know some very,

00:08:38--> 00:09:13

very, very basic things. But outside of that, they basically know nothing, right? And this has been, this is not a new thing, this has always been there. This has always been there, the vast majority of Christians did not know a lot about Christianity. And a very few group of people actually studied their religion, right and knew something about it, or was connected to people who know less, but there's degrees of knowledge, but at least you can put all of them in that they know kind, they kind of know. And then they have a hue, you have a huge majority of people who don't know the same thing with Judaism. There's some elements of the Jewish community that know a lot about their faith. They

00:09:13--> 00:09:47

know a lot about their rituals, the laws, the scholarship, and all of that. And then there are people who know less than less, but then there's a huge majority of people who practically know just a couple of stories, they know a couple of festivals, a couple of major celebrations, but outside of that they know nothing. And the same is true of Muslims. There's a lot of Muslims who know quite a bit, you know, they know about the thick of prayer, they know about Voodoo or the Salah, and the differences of opinion and where the hands are supposed to be they've studied, you know, the the facade of the Quran or they attend some kind of circles or they or maybe they're not super scholars,

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

and they know a lot but at least they're trying to learn more. They're watching videos, you know, listening to lectures, taking notes, reading books, etc. So trying to enhance their knowledge. They've got a copy of some translation or tuxedo dakara. They've got a book out

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

And Muslim at home or something they're trying to read about the Prophet's life. That's one group of people. Some of them know a lot. Some of them know basic, some of them are starting up at least learning, right? Or they're learned. And then you have this huge population of Muslims, that practically knows nothing.

00:10:15--> 00:10:49

But they consider themselves Muslim too. And they're, they're a huge population of people also, that are practically not knowledgeable at all right? And you'd be surprised, they don't even know some of the most basic things. Like they wouldn't know how to summon Muslims, they wouldn't know how to pray, they wouldn't. Or they would know that maybe they learned a little bit about that in childhood. And they don't remember, if not, maybe three, or 400 is three, or what is the afternoon prayer, I forget what it's called, it could be Muslims like that, too. Right. And they, they're not the sort of small population of people. That's a very big population of people. And the purpose of

00:10:49--> 00:11:25

this company is not to praise one group and criticize another group. Because whether or not somebody's got to learn isn't necessarily a responsibility on them. They may be it's may be a part of their upbringing, it may be a part of the society that they were raised in. There are nations in the world. Today, we're learning about Islam was made illegal. So you couldn't learn it even if you wanted to. And it's no surprise that two generations down people know practically nothing about their religion. There are nations that were colonized, and Assad was gutted from that society. And you have people that know that you're supposed to pray in the masjid, praying the laws, and a woman

00:11:25--> 00:12:05

will know that I want to talk to God or pray. But I know you have to be the, you know, this is the house of God. And this show locking up the Muslim identifies as a Muslim remembers her grandma used to pray and recite blonde or whatever. And she's standing in the machine just staring at the ceiling, not knowing what to do. But you came here with sincere intention doesn't have any idea what to do. There are people like that too. That's a reality to this idea is going to be about a mix of both of them. The is going to start with the first group, the group that knows something, the group that learned and he says something a terrible behavior that the people that learned have a terrible

00:12:05--> 00:12:29

behavior, terrible tendency. The most fundamental teaching was Don't be divided in the religion right? Allah says Roma tarraco ilam embody majha homely rainbow bellion mina home, they did not fall into different groups, they did not break up into separations. FARC actually is the same verb that was used for when the water parted with Mussolini's and farrakhan v Komal.

00:12:30--> 00:13:12

But this is from the fire and our pattern that followed Raka Amata for Rocco, el amin valldemossa. The far rope is actually not only does it make it loves him, but it also adds a kind of mobilization to what that means in simple languages. They became separated, the oma is one. There are places in the Quran where Allah describes previous prophets and their people, their followers. And then he says in nahi, omoto, cometan wahida. All of this is your oma one single oma. So we're not just the oma of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, we are the oma of all the prophets combined. We're all just one oma and Allah is our rub, we accept all of the prophets nanofibrillar kobina had a minimum, right?

00:13:12--> 00:13:37

But then you have people who follow prophets learn about their religion, but guess what happens, their religious learning, the education of learning, about, about Allah about what the prophet says about what Allah says, the whole focus of it is actually to, to, to point out how you your understanding is different from this person's understanding. You see, I hold my hands here, but this guy's going to Hellfire because he holds his hands here.

00:13:38--> 00:13:45

I have my beard this long, but this these people, these, these bees will basically imitate, imitate dockerfile they have it that long.

00:13:46--> 00:14:26

Or this person is just like this. That's why they're, you know, they're separate from us. And actually, with even within religious circles, in some countries, we wear this color turban, and that indicates that we're on the right path. And those people with those other color turbans, oh my god, I better not see one of them in my machine. It gets to that extreme. It gets to that extreme. So what what are they studying? What What is it no longer Islam, it's actually they're a bunch of, they become not all of them, but enough of them but become a bunch of cults. And each cult has, you know how in a gang there's a membership. And there's an initiation, and you have to, you know, look a

00:14:26--> 00:14:59

certain way or be indoctrinated into the gang, you have to get a certain kinds of tattoo or you got to wear certain kinds of color, whatever. You literally have initiations in these groups. And if you don't match the description, you're off. You're, you know, and I have you, you know, for people who are not religious or people who don't know much about Islam, they don't know anything about this world. It's like an internal thing. There are Muslims I know that I've never seen the inside of a Masjid. But once you enter this world, this people that are learned or are learning world

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

Then you'll see a strange kind of ugliness in the two, there's a beauty in it. And there's a strange kind of ugliness. And the two, I have literally gone to machines, where they update a list, they update a list of people in groups that are going to the Hellfire, don't listen to them. There's a post, like instead of the DA to enter the masjid, there is actually updated lists of who is no longer, you know, greatly guided. In case he wants people who walk in don't even know who these people are, but at least they have an updated list of, you know, hellbound individuals. You know, I've been to other machines that, you know, my shows that people give money and they donate to build

00:15:42--> 00:16:12

a Masjid, right. And a lot of people who come in Juma, they don't know anything. They just, they just come to pray the Jamaat, there's a guy who's a taxi driver, this guy's a doctor, this guy's this or that, they just come this gift for the sake of Allah. Now they take money for the sake of Allah, and I kid you not gone to Russia. And there's a giant board. This is a machine that belongs to and then there's the name of a very specific group. And if you do not believe in the following items, and they make a bullet list of items, if you do not do this ritual, the way we do it, and this ritual, the way we do it, and this ritual, the way we do it, then you are not welcome here. And

00:16:12--> 00:16:17

if you if you do want to come here, then you pray, but you don't. Don't ever question any of these, these these,

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

like the warning sign, warning label. Now this for someone who doesn't know much about a Muslim who doesn't know much about Islam has no idea that this drama exists. This, you know, cultish behavior exists, but it's there. And then it takes more than these are the more extreme examples, but it takes more subtle examples to there's something there's suddenly examples. The more someone becomes knowledgeable, all of a sudden, they become really interested. Interestingly, they become really interested in differences of opinion, that becomes an obsession.

00:16:50--> 00:16:58

Like instead of studying Islam, the thing that you want to learn about most in Islam is differences of opinion.

00:16:59--> 00:17:01

What does Allah say? Well, Montana fall in love in battle, the magic

00:17:03--> 00:17:04

almost fell off, we love him badly.

00:17:08--> 00:17:21

They did not fall into disagreements, they did not fall into broke broken up groups and categories, until after knowledge came to them. Before knowledge came. This person just said, I just want to be good.

00:17:22--> 00:17:58

I just want to I just I just want to be kind. I just want to make Allah happy. I just want to learn more about my Prophet sallallahu sallam, I don't want to hurt anybody, I don't want to cause any harm. I just want to lead a good life. That's it. I'll just tell me how to be good. Great intention, then they start learning. And what why were they learning because they want to get to know a lot more. They want to get to know their profit more. They want to become a better person, all the right reasons. But as they start learning, that that intention of wanting to learn more love wanting to become better, starts turning into what now I need to know why what I'm learning is right? And why

00:17:58--> 00:18:15

the other guy who's learning from someone else's wrong. And let me make a list of the reasons they're wrong. And I'm obsessed with refuting someone else, correcting someone else, putting in describing how this person is going to fire that person. And there's disagreement, disagreement, disagreement, disagreement, disagreement, constantly.

00:18:16--> 00:18:25

Then there's the other portion of it. You know, when when I'm so obsessed with somebody else's wrong, then what am i assuming about myself already?

00:18:26--> 00:18:28

That I'm right, I already have the ticket.

00:18:29--> 00:18:32

I mean, I already got my reservation, these people are on the wrong flight.

00:18:34--> 00:18:44

I already got I'm on the correct train, these people are on the wrong path. It assumes a kind of self righteousness, were you I am already safe. It's everybody else that needs saving.

00:18:46--> 00:19:25

And when a person develops a kind of self, even if they won't say they say I'm a very humble person, Allah knows best. But let me tell you even though Allah knows best, let me tell you what I know about how everybody else is wrong. It's the antonym the opposite of Allah knows, but but when a person develops this, then what comes with this, what comes with this is a sense of superiority is a sense of I'm better than others. I am better than others. And then this sense, it's not even limited to other religious groups that you disagree with. Even people who don't practice the religion, you start looking at them a certain way. You start having a certain kind of attitude. And it's not it's

00:19:25--> 00:19:36

noticeable. When people look at you look down at you, you can tell even if they don't say anything. If you go to a gathering and you're having lunch with somebody or dinner at a party or something and somebody is looking at you with disgust, you can tell

00:19:37--> 00:19:44

they don't have to come up to you and tell you I think you're disgusting. You can even look around mentions, there's a way to look at people

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

from my novel from Abba savasana.

00:19:49--> 00:20:00

All of those who are not about what he says it's the way he looked the way he frowned the way he turned his head, body language, body language just the way they are

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

Removing the way the leaves ninguna can be Apsara llama semiotica. Allah tells the prophesized that there are some people who stare at you, as if they would make you fall down the way they stare at you. Like if they could shoot laser beams from their highs, almost always look at him, when they hear the reminder, there's an there's a rage in their eyes, there's a disgust in their eyes. Now, let me tell you why I'm sharing this with you. This is a loaded conversation. It's a series of conversations, as you may have guessed, but at least we'll get started today. And the part of this I want to share with you is

00:20:33--> 00:20:45

they develop a way of looking at people looking down at people. And a lot of times it becomes so this stuff out Roca, this stuff will work the separation is even if they don't say it, you can feel it.

00:20:46--> 00:21:26

They don't even have to say this becomes a part of their being. And then you get a phenomenon you get people that when they are in their presence. They feel like this person is so arrogant. This person so judgmental, why are they looking at me? Like I'm disgusting? why they're looking at me like I'm not even Muslim. Why are they talking to me in this way. So you can you can feel the condescending tone coming from this person, right? Now what happens as a result, what happens as a result, very common, this is one of the most common kinds of messages I received. I want to wear a job a sister writes to me, she says I want to wear hijab well and good, but I don't wear it, because

00:21:26--> 00:21:52

I've seen hijab bees and how arrogant they are, and the way they look at you, and the way they do this and the way you like, what, so you want to do this. But the thing that's in your path is people that are already doing it. Because I've seen some extremely, you know, arrogant attitudes from them. And I've seen some of the worst behaviors from them. And I don't want to be anything like them. And I don't want to, I don't want anybody to think that I'm like them.

00:21:53--> 00:21:54

So that's why I don't do it.

00:21:55--> 00:22:31

And it's not just any example that again, was of a job. But there's a million other examples. There's something very wrong with that kind of thinking. But there's, there's two rounds, I told you there's two groups, right? There's the group that knows, and they develop certain bad habits, enough of them, not all of them, enough of them develop certain bad habits. And there is a group that doesn't know they have their own bad habits. They have their own bad habits. And what's interesting is this group becomes extremely judgmental. They start looking at enough of them, not all of them, enough of them, they look at others and they look down on them how misguided they are, how hellbound

00:22:31--> 00:23:04

they are, how deviant they are how disobedient to Allah, they are how you name it. You name the criticism, they got it right, because their Islam is just about criticizing others. Islam is no longer about how do you become more grateful today? How do you learn to have patience with your with your parents? Who are rock patients with you? How do you learn to reconcile with your brother? How do you learn to remember a lot better? How do you learn to you know, develop a stronger love for your profit sizer is nothing positive, it's always about something negative and usually negative directed at someone else, right. But what happens on the flip side, then you have people that look

00:23:04--> 00:23:25

at some of these people. So some some young woman sees enough hijab is that are condescending, or they talk down or they have bad behavior themselves, or they they talk about doing good, but they do a lot of bad themselves, etc. And she says what I'm not going to do anything about this, I don't want anything to do with Islam, because I've seen these Islamic people and they're so messed up that I would rather not anything to do with them.

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

Right.

00:23:27--> 00:23:41

And so in the series of hobas, I'm going to try to address both sides of this. Because these it's funny if you didn't recognize it already. This group is judgmental. And as a result,

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

enough people in this group also become

00:23:45--> 00:23:47

judgmental. They're all the same.

00:23:48--> 00:23:56

There are all these people with the beards, you don't know man, these guys are all frauds. All these guys that go to the washroom Watch out, they're scary.

00:23:58--> 00:24:10

All these women who are they're crazy. You don't even know how can I know some people? You know, some people actually you talk like you know all people. Not only do you know people, you know what's inside their hearts, do you know all of it.

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

But these people pass judgment. And in reaction, these people also pass judgment. And what's funny is that this group of people also says, I, the I hate them, they're so judgmental. The irony of the statement.

00:24:26--> 00:24:28

That's not a judgmental thing to say.

00:24:30--> 00:24:37

But you know what's happened in all of this? And what I just described, everybody's focus is everybody else.

00:24:38--> 00:24:55

Everybody's, this this group trying to distinguish themselves as some kind of a spiritual religious elite as opposed to everybody else. This group trying to distinguish themselves I don't want to be like these fake Islamic people. I'd rather be I'd rather keep it real and disobey Allah.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

Right? And this this is the this is my genuine disobedience to Allah.

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

I don't want to be fake like them, you know.

00:25:03--> 00:25:37

And so, in both the religion is being defined just by comparison, just in comparison. And you know that the antidote to that would be, let's say in the eye before, the religion that was given to you as the same one that was given to who knew hunay snom Ibrahim Ali, salaam Ibrahim Mousavi. Somebody says, If you study the prophets, there's one thing you know, is that nobody accepts them. And they're not doing anything in reaction to anyone else. The the action they take is because Allah told them

00:25:38--> 00:26:08

what other people do or don't do doesn't affect their behavior. And above all of that is the religion of Ibrahim or they say, Rahim Allah Salaam is a nation by himself. He doesn't do what is acceptable or unacceptable. He doesn't leave a behavior because it mimics some other people. Listen, if I, you know, if I start doing this, if I start if I start thinking, the the silliness of this kind of thinking, Man, I hate people who I hate people who drink. I know some people who drink who drive cars to.

00:26:09--> 00:26:12

I'm never going to drive a car because I never want to be like these people.

00:26:13--> 00:26:17

I want nothing to do with cars, because I know some people who drink who also drive a car.

00:26:20--> 00:26:40

So what they do wrong, you want nothing to do with no, no, you don't just want nothing to do with what they do wrong. You want nothing to do with anything that represents them. But the real reason is, it's just an excuse. It's just an excuse to get away to justify First of all, it might turn into just you know your way of being judgmental.

00:26:41--> 00:27:22

And it might just be subconsciously, you and I are hiding. hiding away from the fact that we're afraid to disappear, are afraid to make a change, afraid to make a change in ourselves. And this is a pretty good cover. Nobody can accuse you of that only you can judge that for yourself. Right? So we wait when you look at others misbehaviors and then justify your own, I look at somebody else's wrongdoing, and then justify her and I say, then you say, Well, if I had the choice between being fake and being openly disobedient, I choose Open disobedience. I'm more righteous this way. No, this isn't righteous either. You have to choose the right thing. But is it real that when people

00:27:22--> 00:27:53

misbehave when people that are knowledgeable in the religion don't represent the teachings of the religion anymore? They become a source of division. When they do that? Does it have negative effects on society? Absolutely. Absolutely. It's not like I'm saying, oh, there's no excuse. There is an excuse. If enough people act this way, if enough Islamic looking people act in a certain way, then guess what, then I was raised, you know, when I was raised, a lot of my childhood was in Serbia.

00:27:54--> 00:28:08

I had, I've spent time in Pakistan, too. I spent time in the United States, my early, early adult life and then on in the United States. And I'm telling you being living in the Muslim world, I was afraid of religious people.

00:28:09--> 00:28:17

I was afraid of people that looked a certain way. Because every time I experienced something from them was extremely negative. And it was extremely terrifying.

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

And it just puts you off, it scares you. Right. So there's a reality to that to you has to be acknowledged. And it has to be addressed.

00:28:29--> 00:29:04

On the other side, how sometimes that turns into something irrational also has to be addressed. So that's what we're going to try to address through the study of these IR. So I leave you with this woman who el amin Valley, they didn't fall into disagreement, even after knowledge came to them. In other words, knowledgeable people sometimes instead of becoming a source of unity become a source of this unity. They want people to, instead of accepting differences, and accepting that people are at different levels, and accepting that people are on their own journeys. And you have to give them some room to grow. They want everybody to be just like them. And why do they want that? The secret

00:29:04--> 00:29:21

ingredient? The answer to that is what we're going to explore in the next year. That is something called I'll give you a clue. So you have an appetite for the next whole bunch Allah. There's something in Arabic called the Freudian, the who Marula who means, you know, if I say I'm hungry, or I ate, I ate a sandwich that I added, because

00:29:22--> 00:29:30

so whatever's coming after, because it's the reasons for which I did it. I ate a sandwich because it was yours. And I really wanted you to feel the pain of me eating your sandwich.

00:29:31--> 00:29:49

Whatever I add after because that's my reason. Allah says they fell into disagreement. knowledgeable people fell into disagreement. I understand the motion of goodwill and disagreement. The people who don't know we're in disagreement, while people who have knowledge in disagreement. They're supposed to be the source of unity.

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

To holiday The reason for disagreement, well, then Allah says because of that's my ruler, who it's the because of and the word word here is bullying.

00:30:00--> 00:30:34

Buying a home. That's the phrase we're going to explore. Why Why do people have knowledge fall into disagreement? Why do they become a source of the opposite of what their religion teaches? The previous I said latter, the Federal cofi don't fall into disagreements don't fall into groups don't become factions and cults. And the very next IR says once they learned they became cults, and here's why. The here's why is what the next clip was about. So we're going to try to complete that side of the equation. But I told you this is about both groups, right? The people who know the people who don't know. So once we explore that, then we're going to get to the next part, what happened to the

00:30:34--> 00:30:50

the rest of the people? What happened with them? What was the consequence of all of this? And so once we understand this problem, maybe we know how to deal with it ourselves better, in light of a less guidance barakallahu li walakum for oil hacking, when in fact and he will combine it with the cracking
