And we're live. Alrighty musculo salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah Iwasaki, ah, nine guys, this is the conclusion of his, his introduction to this book. And he has written something so beautiful that I don't think I'm going to break it up. I'm going to try to finish the whole thing today. And I really pray to Allah subhanaw taala that I am able to do justice to his incredible composition and the beauty of the feelings that he's trying to communicate.

00:00:31--> 00:01:14

But do the same in Hazel era Josie he for Cana Giovanni or Josie Hinojosa. It's been it's been the client has been studied, it has been studied from the point of view of what makes it miraculous, so amazing that it can't be human. And the ways in which the point the perspectives from which its miracle has been studied cannot be limited to account. Well, if it will still be here with our beauty is it divine and miraculous in its style and the way it expresses itself? Who if he or she really he or he is it in the way that it legislates it gives laws and jurisprudence? You know, regulations and fee why allegedly he God but hayati and Metallica to accompany words wedge of

00:01:14--> 00:01:27

hustler? Or is it in the healing and the cures that he gives for different dimensions of life? That in the most perfect and most beautiful way, um, who if he but he and his alma mater, Malia Kwame?

00:01:28--> 00:02:07

Is it in the way that it informs us about past nations and nations that were dispersed. And really, they have no other historical record. And unless telling us about nations that we couldn't have possibly known about from other sources. I'm Luffy, buddy, he unless I've got Oh, and by the way, that nations that have long gone, he's referring to a book that he's written is a footnote in here, this is a problem here, we'll look at Avalon award Mohammedan, mina shakeela, clean, it's actually his own journey, because he was agnostic, and he wasn't sure if there's a God. And he wasn't sure that that the Prophet is the problem. He's a prophet, and the Quran is the word of God. So he did

00:02:07--> 00:02:08

his own investigation.

00:02:09--> 00:02:26

Bear in mind, he was, you know, brought up in Iraq and Iraq, at some point had a very strong secular element also, in the last century. And communism was actually, you know, a very common, you know, running ideology in the region. And so it hasn't, it has a complex history at all.

00:02:28--> 00:02:39

And, you know, we think that nowadays, people are becoming more modern, and they're losing their asylum, a generation or two ago, in places like Iraq and other places in the world that Muslims were westernizing way more.

00:02:40--> 00:03:12

And, you know, the sentiments against people that were turning towards the sun were very strong. So he's actually part of that generation. So he writes about that he writes about how he wasn't actually interested in Islam at all at first and he, it bothered him like why why do people believe he didn't think anybody is actually a believer, they're all just pretending. Like he was that skeptical. And then when he finally found reason to believe he wrote a book called the prophethood, of Muhammad, from doubt, to conviction, meaning his journey from being doubtful, to being convinced, he wrote a book about that journey.

00:03:13--> 00:03:19

And inshallah, when we get there, we're actually going to read his book together to like, how is this person who's skeptical and agnostic,

00:03:21--> 00:03:37

making this journey himself, it's a pretty powerful journey, and then goes on to become one of the most incredible scholars of the powerful language of the Quran, and describes it in a way that, you know, other books talk about here and there, but the way he systematically talks about it is, it's pretty incredible. It's what he's done.

00:03:39--> 00:04:09

May Allah preserve him and protect him, he was in charge when the war happened in Iraq. And then when the war was over, and things settle down a little bit about that he was so he's so dedicated to furthering education in this country. He went back to bed. So I was I was planning on meeting him in Chapa, Georgia, but he was gone by then. And he's now backing that up. And I was talking about his student who I know Dr. McKenna, who found out from somebody through somebody that I was talking about him. So he called me last time you talked about me? I was like, Yeah, well.

00:04:11--> 00:04:14

There's like, yeah, I'll call him. I'm gonna go see him soon. I was like,

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

00:04:19--> 00:04:24

Hello, Tyler, we're gonna come here, I'm not going to read the book, I'm just going to give you examples of the kinds of things he's talking about in the book. But

00:16:25--> 00:16:33

I thought it was just a really beautiful, beautiful introduction that people should know about. There's a lot of there's one good Islamic literature that,

00:16:35--> 00:16:45

you know, books and materials that I discovered in, you know, orzo, and in Arabic, and, you know, my desire is also to learn Farsi and get exposure to materials in Farsi.

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

You know, like, like, you know,

00:16:50--> 00:16:54

not just Rumi, but actually, the Farsi and Farsi that I've been wanting to access.

00:16:56--> 00:17:36

So just a cup of tea. Yeah. We just never read them. Yeah, well, I want to be able to access that material. And, you know, there's, there's such incredible heritage that we have even contemporary works that are so beautiful, that one of my goals for you guys, as I teach you in Arabic, is to actually expose you to these amazing thinkers, and these people in their work so that you can benefit from their lifetime of effort. Right, and they can, they've been spending so many more years than we could ever do with the blog. And here's the here's the pinnacle, is what they accomplished with their work, they put it in books, right? And now we get to take advantage of their years. So

00:17:36--> 00:17:58

what I can read over a couple of months, is this person studied for 20 years. So it's kind of cheating almost because they took 20 years to do it. And now they just we just get it you know, and it would be a tragedy if we don't take advantage of it. Right so that's that's really why I wanted to kind of share some of these books with you and expose you to some of this and for those of you who don't know any Arabic And

00:17:59--> 00:18:27

those of you who feel like you don't know where to start just get started you got to start somewhere and once you get started you don't know how a level keep lining that path and make things easier and easier and easier. I mean, did you guys think we could be having these kinds of I could give you an assignment on social marathon and tell you I'd be able to Medallia and Maddie like when we started our gym done that yeah cuz we didn't even exist you guys you know that world existed? Where you could tell me what what um what you know what

00:18:28--> 00:19:07

is our motto and it will cover macadam is or what is this? This is anyway like, we these things were alien to you. Right? And now they're starting to Allah because Allah is hoping when you have the intention, yeah Allah Okay, so I've keeps telling us that the Quran is the most priceless treasures in existence in the world. Anything you want in this life is valued less the Quran is valued more anything like clothes, house, family, have all of that is number two. Allah's word is number one. Like, how do you know Allah loves you? Okay, I know Allah loves me because I'm healthy. I know Allah loves him because I have a family. I know Allah loves you because I have a home. I know Allah loves

00:19:07--> 00:19:20

you because I have clothes. I know love loves me because I'm getting an education. I know a lot mostly because of this, this this this this this right? I live in a safe environment I live I there's a war going on around me. I know a lot of people might think all these things are the reason the Lord loves me. What does the law say?

00:19:22--> 00:19:54

That Allah His greatest love and mercy is that he talked upon. So I know Allah loves me because he gave me the Quran. Actually, that's the number one answer, and then everything else about your life clinical exam. So when I realized that, and then because of that reason, I just want to experience a mouse love. And that's why I want to study and that's why I want to take some time to contemplate, then you watch, you might even think you're the dumbest person on earth. Like you kept telling me you're not good at school. You remember that? You kept telling me you're not going to school. Do you know how many people write to me about both of you and say how smart you are? And they're, they wish

00:19:54--> 00:20:00

they were smart. How many people say Wow, he must be a genius at school. I was like, No, they can't tell.

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

Mi eight school. You know why he tell you something in school because, and maybe I used to feel that way. I used to think I was horrible at school and horrible, like, horrible.

00:20:11--> 00:20:17

And for some reason, when I decided to study the product for the right reasons, I became better at school.

00:20:19--> 00:20:24

And Allah just opened my brain to things that I did not know I could ever

00:20:26--> 00:20:36

I could never imagine. Like I was the I was the healer, the weird, shy, quiet kid that never talks. Yeah. But even when kids talk to him, like,

00:20:38--> 00:20:39

What do you say, and

00:20:40--> 00:20:41

I was a kid.

00:20:42--> 00:20:56

I didn't talk, I was introverted. I was nervous. I was not well spoken. I, I actually thought my greatest weakness was ability, my ability to speak or express myself, I would have nervousness if the teacher asked me a question.

00:20:57--> 00:21:01

Right? Where did I get this like, stupid amount of confidence from?

00:21:03--> 00:21:46

Like, it's ridiculous, the kind of confidence I have now. I don't, it's not because I'm gonna take a confidence course. I'm gonna watch videos and getting confident. It wasn't any of that. It was just when Allah opens up your heart. And Allah removes things from your heart that were that were burdening you, he does that with Allah, I cannot tell you there's there's no other special sauce in my life that other than God, there's no and it it's like, I can't even recognize what person that was, from what you know, there are things in my personality that completely disappeared, completely, completely disappeared. And I only attribute that to the bot. And I'm telling you for each of each

00:21:46--> 00:22:17

of you, whatever it is that you think you have as a weakness, you watch inside of you, Allah just make that disappear, like, like steam evaporated. It's going to be like that when you give on time. So make the intention and it'll happen. It'll happen. It'll happen in ways that is going to be so wonderful and so unique for you. So I pray that for all of you. Let's enjoy the rest of this book. And for the rest of the book alone you welcome somebody to remember us and I will do the rest
