Most of the proficiently Sabri will say the Emory Nakata, melissani of cocoa leaf and hamdulillah salat wa salam. ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. We spoke about the miracles given to the Saudi Salaam and how he declared them a nickel can be it can become, we spoke about the shape that you know, the shape of a bird that was blown into, and then the healing of the blind and the leper, meaning the terminally ill of skin, skin disease, and I talked to you about the parallels that that perhaps has to Israelite history, and how each of them is tied to some incredible miracle or some major historical event in, in Jewish history in the history of the
Israelites. What we didn't get to talk about in some more detail is what will not be only methaqualone mata de Luna booty calm, and I'm going to inform you of what you're going to eat, and what you have stored inside of your homes. Now, the word de de heroin is actually the sort that that death does heroin becomes definitely one this is a principle in salt, where you fuse letters together that are similar in pronunciation. So you find for example, in the Quran, you know, what are called the Center for honor the victory for human mood decade, decade, the root letters actually than coffin Vicar. But because it's moved decades, that that and that are so similar, they get fused
together, this is something we learned when we study soft the morphology of words in Arabic. And these are some irregular examples of that. Anyway, so the root letters are not done. If you're looking it up, you will look up doll ha and or you look up Val Ha. Okay. So is Maha is the original word, and actually means the mud cloud, the original word means intestines, lower stomach, and it you know, it's used for something that is kept deep inside hidden away. And something that is there to nourish or replenish meaning food that gets consumed. And so the idea behind it, which is why the word the word that hid from the same origin, was used for someone who's well fed or fat. That's what
these were adapted for. from it, you get the word that the hero, which translates, I will tell you what you're eating, or what you're going to eat, and what you are going to store in your, in your homes, meaning what you have very deep inside your homes, for your consumption for your consumption and your consumption alone, you know, if the root meanings went back to something that is stored inside of a house, or it's stored inside of some container, or whatever its uses for others as well. But the idea of if the heart related to the belly is that it's something you know, stored for one's own personal gain and personal gain alone. It's their own consumption exclusively. This perhaps is,
you know, there's ways to look at this. I mean, one obvious way to look at it is this is one of the miracles move on, there's nothing more to it. The issue with that I see is that when he described all of this, he said in Effie Valley, kala, Ayatollah Khomeini, all of that there is an ayah for you. And when Allah says anywhere else in the Koran, there is an ayah for you. What does that mean? This is going to give you some direction, some guidance, some something to reflect on something to contemplate, not just a proof, not just a proof that I'm a prophet. Actually, even one of these is enough as a proof of him being a prophet Elisa. But recently, Sam is doing all of these different
things. And at the end of that says enough italica meaning this is something for you to contemplate. This is something for you to really think about. And so that statement at the end is not necessarily calling on all of the miracles of reciting Islam, you know, inviting some form of reflection, so that infidelity can Ayatollah
Kind of informs our way of looking at these miracles. So these are again, my own thoughts on some of what these miracles might represent. You know, the if you went to a corrupt leader among the Israelites and you told them I know what you've been eating and what you've been storing,
I know what you've been eating and what you've been storing or, you know, they would read that a little differently. Right, because their corruption was using manipulation of religion, they were actually consuming people's wealth, they were taking advantage of religion, and were, you know, profiteering off of it. They were changing the law of Allah and consuming haram by you know, by manipulation. Riba was made halal by them the other things they did, these are play game game playing with the law, to take advantage and to make money and then to do so, you know, the religious leadership had to show that they are humble and pious, and beat down and downtrodden. And they don't
look like no bling. They don't look like they're wealthier than everybody else. And yet what they have hidden away stored away is massive, massive, massive amounts of wealth. I won't mention which religion I met a fellow in, in Belgium.
Really interesting. Listen, brother, he used to be he used to be in gangs and spend a lot of time in jail and raised an orphan and then he made Toba and came back to Islam and he helps kids get out of gangs and all kinds of AC and all kinds of things. And he described to me how religious centers all across the city, right and I won't again, name the religion. But you know, the the sellers are all warehouses were stolen jewelry, all this kind of stuff is stored, that the Illuminati will tickle.
Right? And he goes, he, I know exactly which one has which.
Because I used to go that I used to be the pickup guy and the drop off guy at different locations. I was like, Whoa, that is intense. That was some fun dinner conversation. But in any case, when you're when you're talking about people that come You know, on the outside, have a religious facade, but actually a really corrupt and they're they're eating all kinds of heroin, and they're storing it away. You know, this was in the store so much they couldn't be able to they wouldn't be able to spend it in a lifetime they store in this store in this store. And you know, it's different now, because I just mentioned, just met a fellow, a Christian fellow who was really turned off by
Christianity. And so why are you so you know, why are you so you know, disillusioned by your faith? What is it? And I thought he was gonna say, you know, Jesus being the son of God doesn't make sense to me. But no, it was none of that. You know what he said? He said, Well, you know, my preacher, in our church has two planes, two private planes, why do you need two private planes? And where'd you get the money for it? We spent all this money to give to the church to help the poor to good causes. And you got two planes, you know, and then you're like, showing off your role, like, God's been good to me. And you're showing me a Rolex, like, why am I giving you money? You know, and that became, so
with some denominations of Christianity that actually became outright in the open, God's been good to me, and y'all donate a lot of money. So here it is, here's your donation network, you know.
So they'll do that. But, you know, previously what happened, you know, you have, for example, the Vatican, just as an example, the Vatican, if you looked at the, you know, the holy, you know, you know, Faculty of the Vatican, you wouldn't see that these are really people you will, you'll see that they're very spiritual people, they don't have the same kind of clothes, they don't have an elaborate lifestyle, etc. But the kind of wealth that is stored in the kitchen is beyond measure. Right? It's beyond measure. So I call and they have together what you consume, and what you're actually storing. And there may even be a contradiction between the two, you look like you're eating
almost nothing, but you're hiding entire treasures. You know, so there may be that that disparity and just to give off the impression that you're just like everybody else, you know, there's there's nothing, there's nothing that you're hiding away. So this was kind of an exposition of the corrupt elements within the Israelites that these are the symbols calling out also. The mattock una llamada de una de BeautyCon. Interestingly, in Quran Allah describes the greed of the Israelites the past greed of the Israelites by saying, rasasi Allah hesston they are the most greediest Moses of people in worldly life, wishing that they could live 1000 years and clearly storing away wealth as though
they're going to live 1000 1000 years that this was one of their diseases, and so much kulula method goes back to that too. Of course, eating is a theme in the Old Testament, right in Israelite history, starting with Musa alayhis salam, of course when they left Egypt, they asked about different kinds of food. So the consumption was a big deal. And then of course, the slaughter and the sacrifice and what you can and cannot eat the provisionary diet and all of those things. That's all part of their tradition. So will matter Hulu, no matter Sweden has an undertone to what's really important in the Jewish faith and in Islam of that time, really. So that's another thing that I
wanted to bring to our attention the other couple more comments. I was sharing
With our study group and
some more things came out on shout out to Brother soccer for just having some brilliant insights, I shared some of these things, like, you know, the bird being a reference, perhaps to Abraham and Islam, and the dead one coming back to life, perhaps being musante, saddam, and the sick being healed, perhaps the Israelites being struck with religious and then being healed, right? Because, you know, in a sense, these are lessons getting getting all of the miracles that summarize the entire tradition, history of the Israelites, and he's the last of them. It's almost as though he's reminding them of their entire history through his miracles. That's incredible, right? But he said,
you know, as you said this, some other things came in my head. And so we know what's popped in your head. And he said, Well, you know, especially that first miracle of bird, which is made of clay, it specifically mentions clay, and then it comes to life, and it flies off. So something that is assumed to be dead, comes to life, and goes into the sky, could there possibly be a connection to the silence around you know, of something coming to life, and then going race raised up into the heavens. The other interesting thing is, it's actually a cycle of life. If you contemplate it again, shout out to soccer. For this one, it's very beautiful, and I found it very compelling. The first of
these miracles is clay being brought to life, just like human beings are clay, and we are brought to life. That's the first stage of our life clay brought to life. And it's brought to life by being blown into us. And the bird, what did he say about the bird he blows into it, and so and then it brings it to life. And of course, the angel blows the roof into the womb. But even though we know allies, the one who brings life, right, so we're never confused that the angel gave life, it's a law who delivers and in the same way, they started a salon blue balls into the soil, and it turns into a living bird. And so it's, it's represents the beginning of life, then we, you know, a baby can't
really clearly see, and they can either they're in a state of weakness and weakness, even in old ages, like, you know, blindness and sickness, and he's removing blindness and signals, just like for Allah for us, Allah removes our weaknesses, as we grow older and gain strength, and reach maturity in our age. And so it represents actually coming out of weakness into strength, these the healing that is already surrounded, and then beyond that, we're going to die. And then we're going to be brought back to life. And the next miracle is what are heal motivators. Neela I'm going to bring the dead back to life by Allah's permission. And so what's actually now you know, from birth, then
gaining of strength and healing, and then death, and then resurrection again, and what's going to happen after resurrection, we are going to be informed of everything we had all the blessings we had, and all the things that we did, all the you know, all the things that we stored, literally, that we stored, and so what does he say, I'll tell you, what you eat you eat, and what you can store that's profound, that it's actually walking through the entire cycle of life through these miracles, you know?
And then at the end, then if you look at that, and then look at the end of this ayah, and nothing radical, Ayatollah Khomeini, and all of that, there's a profound miracle for you profound sign for you, as if all of this is one lesson. How are you forgetting that you are heading back towards a light in Mecca qadiani, a lot of bigger cotton, formula T, you're gonna be ending up meeting with your master. You know, so this Sabine, this path that is described in the miracles of Islamic content, places really, really powerful in quantum Meaning, if, in fact, you are all believers, as if the Israelites are as acting in a way that suggests that they don't really think about meeting
with Allah. That's not really on the forefront of their mind. And they're forgetting where they came from, and where they're headed. And through these miracles, where they came from, and where they're headed, is being highlighted to them. So in quantum Meaning, if in fact, you are believers actually suggest if in fact, you're claiming that you're the ones that have faith, and how come this, this realization doesn't reflect itself in your behavior in the way you carry yourself? How can this be emailed and notice the words in quantum meaning are actually an echo from SoTL bacara COVID semi morrocan v manakamana Quantum meaning, what a terrible thing your faith tells you to do if in fact,
you are believers, when I didn't know my Casa de la jolla teen Amina Latina Shaku immediately after you will find them the most obsessed with worldly life, even more than those who do come and check. So again, materialism there was in the context of a lesson if in fact, you're believers and Elisa, Islam, challenging their materialism again, and then saying, if in fact, you're believers, this is enough of a sign for you, for you to make your way back. Now we get to the crux of our debate today, which is one will suddenly be in a minute, all right. There are some literary devices here that I can't help but pay attention to because I think they're very, very powerful. The word most of the
con from a grammar point of view again, you notice that it's monsoon most of the con as opposed to most of the con and it is similar to or siouxland
So you notice that in the 49th hire we saw siouxland. And now in the 50th hire, we're seeing one Muslim Deacon. So it's picking up from rasulillah Sadiq Khan, except here when masa de Lima, Albania, dia, Minato, right, I have come as a confirmation of what is right in front of me of the Torah. That's what he says. That's what Jesus says, I've come as a confirmation of what is right in front of me of the Torah. So the word most of the Quran is on the tongue of who these are the Salah, if you go back up to the 49th i o siouxland, is actually on the tongue of the angels, who were talking to them, and said, and he, you know, Allah is going to teach him Kitab hikma taught art and
Gene and sent him as a messenger to when he saw him.
And so this was actually the words of the angels. And now as if that one sentence is continued with the word of Lisa, Lisa, I want to maybe help you understand this through a film example, I can't think of a particular film Alhamdulillah. But what I do want to tell you is you know, sometimes you have a scene where someone says to someone, go tell him this, tell him, I'm going to kill you. Right, and the camera is, the first part of that is go tell him I'm going to and immediately the scene switches and the guy he was telling, is now already going to deliver the message. And the remainder of that sentence comes on the mouth of the one who's delivering it kill you.
Right, so the I'm going to came from the original source, and then the killer part comes from the guy who delivered it and set it and you as a viewer knows that that sentence means he said it to him and then he went back and said it to him. But that that half sentence, half sentence thing was put together like that you ever seen that like half the dialogue came from the mouth of one and the rest of the half came from the mouth of another. It actually means they said exactly the same thing. They said exactly the same thing. So what that means here is what are suelen illa. bunnies right in the angels. Many years ago, were telling Mary, a messenger to the Israelites but perhaps a Saudis Salam
also got up and said I am a messenger to Venezuela, Elan sulan is from the mouth of the angel and a Lebanese law he lives on the mouth of recently Salaam and masa de Lima, Vina de is on the mouth of the switch the cutscene immediate cutscene into that to echo that the delivery of the news to marry fulfilled and was actually lived by Assad a serum. So it's a very powerful lt fat or transition that I wanted to pay attention to now, what does it mean to do to sleep? We've talked about this in Bukhara, but a quick recap of what's relevant here in this discussion. The Torah has many interpretations, the Torah, you know, literally for any one rule, there are so many 1000s of views,
and so many hundreds of views, you could practically look at it any in any way does that means I'm going to interpret it the way it needs to be interpreted the true interpretation of the text. And it's got introductions, meaning people have been inserted their opinion and you know how in Quran you have Quran, and you have to see right and you'll never confuse Quran with have seen the ayah is the ayah. And the words of Altamira toleriane, you know, generally in Raven, Kathy or whoever else are separate. But in the Torah, the commentary on the Torah was like this. So you can tell where the eye ends, and the interpretation begins. It's all written as one. So you couldn't tell which part is
the word of a line, which part is the introduction of the scholar or the one who's interpreting etc, etc. This happened quite a bit with Tata. One of the jobs of really scientism is to actually do the sneak to verify what actually is still not. What actually is still not what was added later on may have been somebody's opinion, and then became part of Okay, that's thought out too. And all just started getting, you know, getting into one, you know how now, if imagine a translation of the Quran, or a commentary on the Quran, we're after every word, there's a parentheses, here's what this word means. And then the next word, parentheses, here's what this word means. But then imagine an
ancient manuscript where the parentheses are gone. Wouldn't that be a problem? Like that would be seriously, where does the text end? And what's the comment? And what's the word of Allah? That's actually what happened. So my job is to restore the original Torah, and to confirm what I have. Now. Now you will appreciate the next words. You know, I myself am a confirmation of Torah. It's not Injeel is a confirmation of Torah. You know, Koran is a confirmation of tonality and Gene Injeel is a confirmation of thought. But he's not saying the my revelation is a confirmation of previous revelation. He's saying, I myself, am a confirmation of previous revelation. That's a big
difference. That's actually not just saying what I'm teaching you, but the way I'm living, I'm living the thoughts.
I'm actually a living embodiment of the toilet is what he's saying. What I'm doing how I'm living is actually what the toilet is supposed to look like.
So, in that sense, he's saying, I have been sent as a confirmer of Torah, I am the living, sneak of the Torah. It's similar to how the Prophet was described, right? So
the Quran walking around so it's essentially it's Jesus is resized all out walking around. Okay, of course it also suggests because he's been given Injeel. In addition, we'll actually I'll hold on on that point, because that's coming later on in the phrasing. The other piece here that's important is lima bean idea. I'm confirming not just Masonic illiterate, I'm here to confirm.or I'm a confirmation of the Torah. No, no, no, I am here to confirm what is right between both of my hands of the Torah, between both my hands is an Arabic phrase for what is right in front of you, that you have full access to what is right, and like something is way back there. I don't have immediate
access to it. Something that this book is right, literally, between my hands, it's right in front of me I have full access to it. You know, parts of it were hidden parts of the lot, where were admitted, parts of the lot were kept secret, etc, etc.
So I'm missing Actually I have full access to the entire Torah. There's nothing that says, Torah from me because it's right between my hands. Where did he get it from? Well, you are lemuel kita hikma Torah that will indeed Allah has given him full access to the Torah, Allah has taught him Torah again, all over himself, which means nothing of the Torah is hidden from him. So when he's confirming it, and he's embodying it, it's like, well, oh, yeah, you're living example of Torah. Where did you learn torah? How do you have a lot anyway? And he says, it's right in front of me. It's right in front of me. You know how in Quran Allah says, that to be Torah, for loja and kuntum.
Saudi to go bring Torah, read it. We saw examples of the prophets I said, I'm asking them to read parts of art.
And now it's actually a fairly some challenging them bring the book. Because I am a living example of the book, I live the book and I have the book in me.
I'm an embodiment of the book and the book is, resides inside of me, Allah has given it to me. That's what's captured inside the phrase Lima by Anya dia, then the Minotaur art is of course it's it's by Nia meaning ie the Torah administered from its ie the Torah, but it also means it's not all I have. I'm confirming that. And I'm when I'm talking to you about this, because they're like, well, he seems to have some new revelation, of course, what new revelation has he been given in June? So like, we don't accept in God only accept our art. And his response is actually, I'm here to tell you what our art is, in fact is. And the only role of ngl is to confirm what that actually says. He
doesn't have new Los Angeles and have a new fatwa on something in jail doesn't make anything of the Rotman school, as a matter of are invalidated or abrogated, are no longer applicable. As a matter of fact, I am here to embody all of the teachings of the Torah.
And so the because their argument was if he's claiming new revelation, then he's defying the Torah. He says no, actually, I came to validate and confirm the authentic or not, that's my primary role. And now given that he makes an additional statement, a very powerful statement, and it's almost counter intuitive. When Helena Cohn Bhavana de Rima alikum, this demands a lot of reflection and I came so that I may make permissible for you some of the things that have been made prohibited on you,
I may I came to make permissible for you some of the things that have been made prohibited. Now, the first thing I want you to note here is He did not say I came to make permissible what Allah previously forbade.
Allah is not mentioned in the equation. What has been mentioned is what was made prohibited.
What was made perfect, that's the passive form okay. And the making of halaal is actually active meaning I have come to make permissible I have come to unleash literally Hello means hello Doctor means to untie a knot. I have come to untie or unleash some of the things that have been bound on you meaning some of the things that have been made per impermissible over you. The question that arises when somebody says, Hey, this has been made unlawful, or this was made illegal. The question arises who made it illegal? Of course, when you think of something made illegal, you think the authorities made it illegal. The government made it illegal. The Court made it illegal the
constitution made it illegal. You think of a higher authority that makes things legal and make things makes things illegal. In the case of Jewish tradition in the Israelite tradition. It wasn't just a law that makes halal and haram
who started making things halal and haram. There are the market. They started adding to a little
list of things that are hot Um, so and and that as time passed by the, you know, the the their books their jurisprudence books had this is impermissible. This isn't permissible This is impermissible. This is impermissible, and you don't even know where it came from?
Why? Why are we not allowed to do that? Where did that come from? They have this dilemma have said, Where are they? Where do they get it from? The last those questions, they decided to follow it. It says it's right there and says the fatwa is impermissible. What do you mean? In other words, prohibitions are very they were very, very adamant about prohibitions, yet they couldn't tell where they came from.
If you if they asked if really probed they couldn't be because it's much room, totally moronic.
Now, how am Allah? Can you actually say literally, Allah made this Hello? No, no, no, no, but it's how I'm still. Why? Because our chef said, Why do you say? Or Who are you to question our chef.
So the list of haram got very, very big. But you would think
if they're corrupt, if they are, in fact corrupt, then they shouldn't be making more things haraam they should be making more things. Hello, that's what I mean by counterintuitive, right? Like, these are listen should come back and say, No, no, no, you guys have made too many things. halaal on yourselves. You need to go back and become more restricted on you know, go back to being conservative again, you guys got to liberal, you know, but it seems the opposite. You guys got more conservative than Allah wants you to be. And I've come back to loosen things up for you to make things because to make things Hello does make things easier, right? And to make things harder is to
make things harder. And it seems that their problem is they want to be more conservative, more obedient, more restricted in life, why? It seems everything else that they want to do is so against Allah's will. But making more things around by the way, you think of it this way you nowadays if you find somebody who's very strict in their Islam,
people that we think are very strict in Islam usually means they have most things around for them.
Right, they're really big on like, like, almost, if in doubt, it's Haram,
you know, and they're very limited in the way they can behave and move around. And the more strict they are in that way, the more the more haram they impose on themselves. You would think the more religious they are. And that seems to be the case here that they've imposed so much on them that clearly there must they must be religious people. They must be closer to God because they have so much impositions on themselves. This is actually part of the facade that insulation came to break. This was a this is a smokescreen, this is a disguise. And the way to describe this disguise is you know isn't an old or new phrase I don't even remember the order of it but the meaning of it is
ridiculous but so I will share the meaning of it with you. You know the hunter is obsessed with with you know killing the mosquito while the elephant quietly escaped.
The point is if you get what I'm trying to get at is you are so nitpicking about the my nudists details and coming splitting a fatwa into a fatwa into a fatwa into a fatwa about what is halal and haram. And while at the same time, some of the biggest disobedience is to Allah slip right by no problem.
Right. And so you have, well, is it helpful for you to wear a colorful a firearm? Or is it you know, how much hair Do you have to cut? Or what do you have to do? You know, I cut my nails, but when I was cutting, I bled a little does that mean I have to slaughter a goat or you know, like, you come up with like, give me a fatwa for just the most technical details of the law.
And yet, your wife was not given her mother.
And your daughter was not given her share of the inheritance.
And that's, that's okay.
And, oh, no, no, you're here showing you're here showing the job is to cover your ear stuff.
And that's okay, but Heba all day.
All day backbiting, just destroying somebody's dignity, but the job is perfect.
You know, so what happens then? They look religious.
And they make a lot of things Haram. And they're very strict about those people will mean those man as some some people, so how do they come to these conventions? And they dress like this, and they talk like this and how are you even praying your hands were over here. Your hands are supposed to be here. Dude, if you're praying next to me, and you're thinking about my hands,
then there's a bigger problem than my hands.
That's actually literally happened to me. I was at a machine one time. And you know, after we said Salaam, the guy next to me says, your Salah didn't count.
Why did he come? He said, Well, your your elbows were out. Your elbows are supposed to be in. Oh, well, thank you.
Like you, how do you have your like me the guy is taller than I am. So he's really looking down on the elbows,
too. This is what he said and his son came to call out, you've made a bunch of things harm
that are not the most important thing. And you pick on them and pick on them and pick on them. And as a result of that some of the greatest evils that the religion came to prevent, you don't even notice.
They just they just happen to no big deal. Financial Crimes, no big deal. Corruption, no big deal.
backbiting, slander, no big deal.
And then this is sounds like an ancient disease that we have no exposure to. right there's a Israel light problem. Why would we have this issue? Well, you Hello Allah combat Ebola, the hora Malik, what is what what is what is the challenge I'm saying? I'm saying if you go back to the original book of Allah, if you go back to turati original, that I'm confirming with the way that I live,
then you will find that the huge list of heromart that you made is not a huge list of all at all. A huge list of prohibitions that you made is mostly puff, is nothing.
Let me tell you a story from the Bible. It's going to be hard to understand because it's, you know, the Bible's language sometimes is ambiguous, but I'll explain at the end. At that time, Jesus went through the green field on the Sabbath. Now Sabbath is a day when the Jews are not supposed to do much. Yes. Okay. His disciples were hungry and began to pick some heads of the green and eat them. So disciples of Jesus are going through a field, and they're just picking off the top and just eating some greens because they're starving. When the Pharisees which means the religious leaders saw this, they said to him, Look, your disciples are doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath? He
answered, haven't you read what David did? When he and his companions were hungry? He entered the house of God, and he and his companions ate the consecrated bread, which was not lawful for them to do, but only for the priests, or Haven't you read the law that the priests on Sabbath duty in the temple desecrate the Sabbath and yet are innocent? I tell you that something greater than the temple is here, if you had known that these words mean I desire mercy, not sacrifice, you would not have condemned the innocent, for the Son of Man is the Lord of the Sabbath.
The Pharisees seem to have been overcautious, this is comments now. The Pharisees seem to have been overcautious in applying the commandment from Exodus meaning that the observing of the Sabbath right Exodus 3421, six days you shall labor but on the seventh day, you shall rest even in plowing and harvesting seasons, you must rest, meaning there's not going to be any work, you're not going to plow the fields, etc. The disciples weren't plowing.
What were the disciples of Jesus doing? When they're harvesting? We're just eating. That's all they did. They weren't just they were just picking a few greens for themselves. So they weren't breaking the exodus command. But the Pharisees being overcautious had decreed that even that shouldn't be prohibited.
And so Jesus doesn't challenge their interpretation directly. Rather, he quotes the scripture back at them to show that you can go against what is deemed lawful for the sake of mercy far more effective.
You know, if someone has had intimacy with their spouse, then they can just make will do they have to take a shower.
There was a soldier among the Muslim army in the time of the Prophet size on them, who had a wet dream.
Okay, so he was aroused. And he, you know, had a wet dream, which requires that if he's going to pray again, he has to shower, but he was also injured in battle. So he had a head injury.
So there were some among the companions who said you're you can't just make widow, you have to have him come on man. And so he went and forced himself to shower and as a result, he died.
And the prophet SAW him was extremely upset. What have you done?
What in the world have you done? The rule says you have to shower but there are mercy overrides the rule. There are exceptions. Even alive, how badly does a lie condemn? You know, that the dead animal carcass blood, pork, he prohibits these things familiar to Robin, whether it is money, but if someone is forced, not because they're being rebellious, not because they just want to cross the line, but because they're dying of starvation, and they had some pork chops because that's all that was left.
Then there's no synonym. Absolutely not La, la, la. Now theologians, there is no sin whatsoever on them.
The law of Allah
Is there but that's for normal circumstances and there were even exceptions made by Rasulullah sallallahu. You
think about the woman who committed adultery, came to the prophet SAW Islam and said I also like committed adultery.
He says go away.
I don't wanna hear you go away. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received the law of Allah, he received the law of Allah. No one will implement the law of Allah better than the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, in our times, in some super conservative village. If some girl says, I committed adultery.
Before she gets to the word adultery, which she says, I committed, the stoning begins.
She comes to the association and says, I did this.
Punish me. He says go away. She came back, I found out I'm pregnant. Please punish me.
This is gold away. Don't talk to me until you have a baby.
She has a baby comes back with the baby punishment.
He says no, not until you feed the baby for two years ago. Go.
Don't come to me. She comes back with bread in the baby's mouth to show the profit that she doesn't need to feed him anymore. Can you punish me now?
The prophet SAW Selim is trying to push her away, push her away, push her away. Why
is that? I mean,
she there are some people who are who think the only way Allah will be happy is when they're punished.
They're more conservative than Islam. You're more religious than your profit.
That's not as well. Some things are made halal. And he did that for a reason. And that's something that is the essence of the book. It's in the core, in the heart of the book, there's mercy, there's room. And that's what prophets embodied. You know, even the prophets of Psalms instruction was don't seek to execute the punishments of Allah.
Don't do that.
Don't seek out when can I implement the whipping? When can I implement the stoning? When can I implement the cutting overhead? When can
the low tadano
in his time he suspended cutting the head?
Why? It's a law, the law. And it's not even some early law of Islam. It is
one of the last revelations
suspend the law? Yeah, yeah. there's reason to do that.
Well, you know, the harmonica, but there's another dimension to this not just the law of love, where actually things are halal, and Haram, and how we're supposed to implement that. But there's another dimension, you see.
Something is haram.
Maybe this this one thing is haram.
And what we do is if the art the art means we're going to create a circle around it and say everything that's even within 10 miles of this is haram to
okay. So and we do this because we want to protect ourselves, right? So we say no, I know this isn't Haram, but everything around it, we're just gonna
create a gigantic circle, and say all of it.
So you know, to give you an example of that.
Adultery is haram, Xena,
but you know, doesn't happen overnight. Pete two people have a relationship and goes out of hand, they don't get married, they do something wrong, etc. So you know what, we're going to prevent that from happening. Women
should not drive.
Because if they drive, then there might they might go to the mall and have to go to the mall. The guy at the store might like them, and they start to understand what's going to happen.
So the better thing to do
is to not
well, that's a super smart football, because we're protecting them. And we're not saying driving is haram. But we're saying if we let that happen, then haram will happen.
So we're being extra cautious.
Now what happens when you become more cautious than a lion is messenger? Because that's what that is.
If something was actually dangerous, who would know it better than you and I would
alone His Messenger would. And they would have told us this is bad for you. You can't do it. You with me? But we say well, Allah told us this is red alert, Code Red. Let's start putting the barbed wire around code green,
and yellow and orange. All of that don't even get into the yellow stuff. Someone steps into the yellow stuff through La la la la, la la. You sat at a dinner table
and there were other people there.
I'm going to go Okay, I'm gonna go make ombre for you. Because
this is the same Quran that says Lisa alikoum Jenna, Jenna and Taku Jamie and oh
started. It's okay if you eat together if you eat apart. Some people are so conservative that if they're sitting at the same table and a guest came and there's women in the house or whatever, and they're sitting at the same table and the guest came a male came and they sat at the same table Stoffel law. Do you have a curtain, I can sit on the other side of it. And maybe you can electrocute that curtain for me too. So I can be protected from the fitna and in case I was thinking about touching the curtain, my hands would be reminded of the taqwa of Allah and so I could
you know, when you do that, when you create more and more and more prohibitions,
in order to protect yourself, the intention is may even be good, you know what happens? Let me tell you what happens. What happens is, these prohibitions are unnatural. The prohibitions Allah actually gave us our natural they correspond to our fifth law. Allah knows Allah, Allah, Allah don't, doesn't, Doesn't he know who he created? Allah knows who he made. So he makes us stay away from things that are actually filthy. When you have any more Allah He will have if Allah prohibited actual filthy things, but when we start taking things that aren't in and of themselves, filthy, aren't in and of themselves evil and we start prohibiting them to unnecessarily and I'm not saying
caution isn't important. Caution is something else. kitabi something else hikma, something else? That's actually the difference. And I'll get to that last. But right now just listen to this part. If you start making illegal things that ally did not make illegal, then what happens to people when they start in one crime, they start equating what Allah prohibited with what people prohibited and that is a major sin.
Because only Allah owns the right to prohibit something.
And to use the word haram for something other than what Allah used it for. is actually trampling on the sacred
or women have Rama Xena tala.
Tell them who dare make Haram. What Allah made beautiful, the beauty that he led everybody, the ones that he pulled out for his believers for his servants. He alladhina amanu This is for those who believe who's gonna make that Haram.
Now, it's there's a difference between seeing something as haram and something is a bad idea. You will be not everything has to be not every Hello, the thing is a good idea.
Okay, so if you know your ears, you know, son wants to go out in the middle of the night. Midnight, your 18 year old son says I'm going out where are you going? Just going out?
No, don't go around.
I can go is there an ayat of the Quran that says 1145? I shouldn't be going outside? No, no, there's no if there's nothing nice.
That's not a problem of Kitab. That's a problem of what pigma wisdom.
The problem becomes in the minds of the people. Then, unless it is prohibited in the law. It's completely fine.
And the only way you can stop people from doing something is tell them it's Hara.
That's a huge mistake. It's a huge mistake. This is what happens when Kitab gets separated from Heckman. This is this is what happens. And that you know in the young generation, then Heckman is completely gone. In the next generation, you know what they say? Hey, my mom says I can't do that. [???]. Is it haram?
Well, first of all, I'm not ashamed.
And second of all, so what if it's not haram? I just wanted to know if it's haram or not thanks.
Because now that you know it's not Haram, that means
you're going to go do it. No, just because it's not haram doesn't mean it's not a stupid idea.
doesn't mean you're not going into something that's unwise.
This is why Wilma unzila on a communal kitabi well Hekmati you can be it's not just me, Nikita, whatever Allah sent down to you of the of the law, and of wisdom is there to counsel you there's such a thing as living life by the law, and also living life by wisdom. The problem with the Jewish community of the time of least, Islam was the only thing that mattered was your living by the law.
That's it. That's all that matters. patois that's all my life amounts to. That's one extreme that happens. Another You know, when you do something unnatural. You know what, like, when you eat unnatural diet, then you get strange kinds of diseases. When you introduce unnatural things into the religion, strange kinds of diseases that happen in the community in people. Strange misguidance has happened that weren't happening before. So what happens to another generation of people? They say, Man, as soon as I came up of age, all I've been hearing is most things are Haram.
This religion just doesn't let me live a normal life. Everything is nothing is allowed. I just met a brother who took Shahada maybe five, six months ago, he reached out to
On Facebook, we started talking Hispanic fellow. And he tells me, man, I went to the masjid and had a haircut. And somebody told me my haircuts Haram.
And they're like, this is against the Sunnah of the Prophet Salam and it's I'm gonna go to Hellfire because I have this haircut. And I'm just thinking, all I did was do a haircut. I didn't know the Prophet was so angry at haircuts.
He's really genuinely confused. And I'm like, you're fine, bro. You're fine. It's okay.
Don't worry about it.
And then he comes to me another day. He was wearing a baseball hat. There's a baseball hat.
I was like, This is Ron, this is imitating the Godfather Tom.
I don't even know where to begin with those.
What a turban is more Islamic to you.
Is that is that closer to Islam to you? Because Buddha had wore a turban
what is the towbar religious because the worst enemies of Islam will even mahira were told
is that Islamic calling
when the Sahaba went to Rome they went they dressed in Roman clothing
nobody said to them you're dressed like the kuffaar
baseball hat. This is what happens when you expand the scope of how Tom you know what happens people that were coming into this Dean start walking away. This is the opposite of what the prophet advised when he went and said why Salaam to introduce people to Islamia Salah will not make economic difficulty.
The list of what is haram is already clear and not halala been well Haram. Then what we do is we
we show that there's there's many branches and branches and branches of Haram. What what religion is this? This was a disease of the Israelites that a Saudi son came to fix. Well, hello Omar Abdullah de hora Morocco,
I can begin to tell you how many people have come and told me I just can't follow Islam, because everything is haram. And then I have a 20 minute conversation with them. And 19 out of the 20 things they list that are supposedly haram aren't
Bollywood so what I learned,
but it's not in the book.
It's not anywhere.
You know, there are places in the Muslim world where a girl getting an education is haram.
where a woman getting work is haram going to an office is haram. What Quran are you reading these Daughters of the man in Medina are going to hurt their sheep and some water among non believers.
And that's a no Koran. And these are normal women soloable they made it into the Quran and women are allowed to go to work. When you expand that you know what happens, it becomes easy to leave Islam.
The first step into Islam is supposed to be to make ease
is to make ease and then as believers mature, then they can take more and more responsibility on.
But then again, I tell you what used to be a matter of caution. We made it a matter of law. Caution and wisdom is something else law is something else. So he's saying will you come back?
I came to unleash for you to make permissible for you. Just because they're eating these greens in the field doesn't mean they violated the Sabbath. What is wrong with you The purpose of the violation of the Sabbath, so you don't make material gain. Allah didn't prevent you from surviving,
that's not going to like are revealed what is wrong with you.
That's not the book itself. How ended the key inside of this ayah the key and the idea that the Israelites were missing for generations upon generations, and that's a key for us is that their connection with Torah had actually been lost.
The original Torah, their connection was lost.
They had a they confuse the connection of their scholars, opinions, opinions, opinions, opinions, with their connection with Torah.
This oma when it forgets there's a difference between an I'm a student of the field and I'll say this without hesitation, when we forget that there's a difference between a connection with NFC and soul and a connection with Kitab Allah, then we're going to have the same problem.
Well, I will encourage you to listen until I hit Abdullah. You don't find a change in the way a lot of things when somebody thinks reading that I've seen of the Quran is the same as the contemplation of the Quran itself. And a connection with the Quran itself.
When somebody thinks that the, the, the, the rules of it have already been extracted Word the Word of Allah is a is a living, you know gift that gives life that restores faith that gives the skier a book of fear cannot do the skier.
A set of regulations cannot give you wisdom. Wisdom can only come
From the words of Allah, every human being is in need of the words of Allah, not just scholars scholars have done a profound effort extracting and extrapolating the law and the law is valuable and it's and the jurisprudence of it is valuable, but it has no meaning if the word of Allah is not no longer a connection
it loses its meaning completely.
Then it's empty rituals. Just empty empty it's a shell of what looks like Islam but it's not Islam at all.
Then Ramadan is just about the stars are just about being hungry during the day as no other meaning
has no value.
Can Have you just something you do and go take selfies near the Kaaba.
Man It's hot. I wonder what's on the buffet
then you're not thinking about him at a salon you're not thinking is married. You're not thinking none of that stuff is in your head, the spirit of it is gone. Well you held a la cumbre de la de la Kumar very heavy words. And at the end of that he says what you can be it not be calm. And there There you have it, I a messenger is given
out are of two kinds I mentioned this in the last session there are two kinds of art there's the the purpose of is to prove that he's a messenger and it's a message noticing these words up until now they were miracles and at the end of it all there's the message when you held the harmonica and the either the conversation began I need you to can be iron and nickel can be it mama become and it's also closing what it can be HTML from become two dimensions of the art and two references to the word IRA. same phrase, and I've come to you with an IRA from your assigned from Milton. Notice also in this passage that esala makes two kinds of references to a lot of rub and Allah
He says in the beginning, and it can be it not Manila, Morocco, but then later on he says and the local acuminata Anika he added a different fee for your item B is Nila na Nila become but inilah and then what mahanagara Saba Hinata de if Allah so Allah, Allah, Allah become or become
right, so two references to the word a lot two references to the word rugby comb and it's perfectly symmetrical. But there's more going on here that I'd like you to know. When he refers to Allah as Allah, he's actually highlighting Allah has sole right to be worshipped, and his stole heat. Meaning I'm looks like I'm giving life but only Allah gives life Don't, don't, you know, attribute divinity to anyone else. When we're talking about the question of divinity, the word Allah will come up.
When we're talking about the question of authority, who has ultimate authority over you, I'm telling you these things because my master has told me to tell you and he's not just my master, he's your master too. I'm not doing this to impress you, I am doing this as a slave because whenever you say Rob, then what do I become?
I become a hub, I need you to come be it my Rob become I have come to you from with aside from your master, meaning He's my master too. I came as a slave and you all I came to remind you that you're slaves to him your loyalty and your obedience needs to be absolute to him. That's the word love in the beginning and at the end, as if to suggest that one divinity should not be attributed to me and two and that's by the way the Christian problem
and authority should only go to Allah which is the Jewish problem.
So between Robbie calm and the word Allah it's actually both nations addressed even though he's particularly addressing the the Jewish community of the time the followers of Masada Salaam coming forward the Christians are listening to this right they there's the the Christians of Magellan that are listening to this, their divinity problems being solved.
But with the words be if Milla Milla Pamela. So that's the difference between rugby comb and the word Allah in this passage or one of the dimensions of it. And so as I conclude Fatah Lucha de Rouen, then be cautious of Allah. Be protect yourselves from Allah. This is heavy, because he just said I made some things halaal for you, which means things got easy just because some things became halaal doesn't mean everything became Hello, you know what happens to an extreme reaction to an extreme action? There's an extreme reaction. So if you made everything haraam, then you know what, I can't live like this. So I'm going to do what make everything Hello, you know, we need to have a
more merciful interpretation of the law, because I heard a lecture by Molly Hahn and he was saying that we make too many things Haram.
And what do you and what do you construe that to mean? Let's make too many things What? Hello, that's also a violation of a law. Hold on buddy. So before the I ns for Tacoma, hold on a sec. Be cautious of a law. Follow me, obey me meaning do as I do
Listen to this do as I do. He never drank. He never ate pork. And he said,
How do you do that?
Because he's not just saying love me, believe in me and you're saved. Follow me. What are your own, be cautious of the line obey me is the most consistent demand of all profits. Be mindful of Allah and obey me Be mindful of Allah and obey me and obeying the prophets Anima subtle Salam is to figure out how did they judge situations? How did they behave in different circumstances? It's not just a particular behavior. It's actually their mindset. Studying the COI is really important for this purpose, understanding how the profit slice and I'm handled different circumstances. You know, the more you study about a person, the more you're trying to get inside their head, you're trying to
understand how do they process things? How do they think? How do they analyze situations? How do they judge situations? And the more we do that, the more we're in a position to obey Him for alteon and if our outcomes from the word power, which actually means to volunteer,
or to voluntarily Follow me, Don't follow me because it's some kind of an obligation on you, and you're doing it but actually, I need you to give in and be volunteer and volunteer yourselves wanting to do this. So that's Fatah while you're on
we'll have a discussion inshallah. Tada, next session on in the lobby, what I'm looking to do, who has also optimistic team that's also a long conversation, we'll stop it at this point, we'll make salah and inshallah Tada. I'll repeat yesterday's session for those of you that missed it, because there was some recording issues yesterday. So barakallahu li walakum wa salaamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
