The concept of "farticip" in the Bible is used to express pride in the owner of a property or business. It is also discussed that Islam was meant to be for everyone, not just certain cultures. The speakers emphasize the importance of finding a transparent connection between parents and children, sharing one's views on religion to avoid criticism, and finding people who have a strong desire to be replaced by Jesus. The segment also touches on the challenges of learning in a classroom and the importance of sponsor students.

This idea of the sense of superiority over

00:00:02--> 00:00:03

others

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

afflicted this ummah.

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

And this is the exact thing. Oh, I

00:00:07--> 00:00:10

am telling you, Allah pointed out that the

00:00:10--> 00:00:11

Israelites had this mentality

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

and Allah corrected that mentality and gave this

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

this deen to the entire world.

00:00:18--> 00:00:20

And now, each one of us became mini

00:00:20--> 00:00:21

Israelites.

00:00:27--> 00:00:29

Before you begin this video, just quickly wanted

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

to let you know that so much of

00:00:30--> 00:00:32

the work on the Quran has been completed

00:00:32--> 00:00:34

on Bayina TV. I want you to enjoy

00:00:34--> 00:00:36

systematically studying the Quran from the beginning all

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

the way to the end in brief and

00:00:38--> 00:00:40

then in great detail. And to do that,

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

I'd like for you to sign up on

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

bayinatv.com.

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

And once you appreciate what's going on in

00:00:44--> 00:00:46

bayyanatv, I want you to become an ambassador

00:00:46--> 00:00:48

for it and share that subscription with friends

00:00:48--> 00:00:49

and family and give it as a gift

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

also. Thank you.

00:00:51--> 00:00:52

Then we get to this next ayah where

00:00:52--> 00:00:53

Allah says,

00:00:55--> 00:00:57

That is that is the favor of Allah.

00:00:57--> 00:01:00

He gives it to whoever He wants.

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

And Allah is the owner of the ultimate

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

favor. I want you to first understand the

00:01:04--> 00:01:06

meaning of the word fadr the favor, what

00:01:06--> 00:01:09

I'm calling favor. Fadl alizar means if somebody

00:01:09--> 00:01:12

has a really long dress or a cloak

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

like royals used to wear clothes, but they

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

used to drag behind them.

00:01:16--> 00:01:18

Right? Or you might see you don't watch

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

movies, but you'll have a royal holding up

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

his garb or the servants holding up their

00:01:22--> 00:01:23

garb when they're walking.

00:01:23--> 00:01:27

That excess stuff is called fadl actually, the

00:01:27--> 00:01:29

excess long part is called fadl. Fawadlululmar

00:01:30--> 00:01:32

is basically profits from your property or your

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

business. So your bonus is a fadl,

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

your bonus or your extra profits, your extra

00:01:37--> 00:01:38

sales are a fadl.

00:01:39--> 00:01:40

Or sometimes in America, I don't know how

00:01:40--> 00:01:42

taxes work here, but

00:01:43--> 00:01:45

sometimes the government actually gives you back some

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

money

00:01:46--> 00:01:48

after you pay them taxes. You get a

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

tax return,

00:01:49--> 00:01:50

right? And when you get that return, it's

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

a little bit of a fadl.

00:01:52--> 00:01:53

Okay?

00:01:54--> 00:01:56

So that fadl is extra. You didn't expect

00:01:56--> 00:01:58

it. It's more above and beyond.

00:01:58--> 00:01:59

Fabbalahuhu,

00:01:59--> 00:02:00

this is reversed in

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

text sequence.

00:02:04--> 00:02:06

To raise someone above someone else, to give

00:02:06--> 00:02:08

someone an extra advantage over somebody else. This

00:02:08--> 00:02:10

is an important word and I'll show you

00:02:10--> 00:02:10

why

00:02:11--> 00:02:13

before I get to this ayah.

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

What did Allah say about the Israelites?

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

He said,

00:02:20--> 00:02:22

I gave you an advantage, I gave you

00:02:22--> 00:02:24

an extra advantage, and I gave you a

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

preference over all other nations.

00:02:26--> 00:02:28

That's what Allah told Bani Israel

00:02:29--> 00:02:31

He gave them more prophets than anybody else.

00:02:32--> 00:02:35

He gave them more chances than anybody else.

00:02:36--> 00:02:38

They lost the tawrat multiple times it was

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

restored for them multiple times.

00:02:41--> 00:02:43

Allah is now using the word fadl after

00:02:43--> 00:02:44

saying

00:02:44--> 00:02:46

first of all he sent a messenger among

00:02:46--> 00:02:47

the Ummyeen

00:02:47--> 00:02:49

and then he opened the door to all

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

nations.

00:02:50--> 00:02:53

And that is the of Allah.

00:02:53--> 00:02:56

The word fadl is particularly important now because

00:02:56--> 00:02:58

now the fadl has moved.

00:02:58--> 00:02:59

Oh, what just happened?

00:03:00--> 00:03:02

The fadl has moved from one to the

00:03:02--> 00:03:04

other. Now I want you to see one

00:03:04--> 00:03:06

more thing in Surat Al Hadith, this series

00:03:06--> 00:03:08

of surahs. I'll just highlight the bottom of

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

your actually.

00:03:18--> 00:03:21

I'll tell you something brief about sultan hadith

00:03:21--> 00:03:23

57. This is 62 that's surah number 57.

00:03:25--> 00:03:27

Allah there talks about how

00:03:28--> 00:03:29

nations that came

00:03:30--> 00:03:32

the people of the book, the Jews and

00:03:32--> 00:03:32

the Christians

00:03:33--> 00:03:33

are so

00:03:35--> 00:03:35

confident

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

that you have nothing,

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

that your book and your prophet is nothing.

00:03:41--> 00:03:43

And they have dismissed it because they don't

00:03:43--> 00:03:45

think it's possible that the Umayyin,

00:03:46--> 00:03:47

his Arabs,

00:03:47--> 00:03:49

they're gonna have a Prophet? Come on.

00:03:50--> 00:03:51

Why would they be blessed? What do they

00:03:51--> 00:03:52

have?

00:03:52--> 00:03:55

You know, they couldn't accept that someone from

00:03:55--> 00:03:56

that lower nation

00:03:57--> 00:03:58

could be blessed

00:03:59--> 00:04:01

because of that, they will never even give

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

it time to think about the word of

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

Allah that you've been given.

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

They won't even consider it. It's not even

00:04:08--> 00:04:09

on their radar.

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

And when it's not on their radar, Allah

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

says, one of the punishments of those arrogant

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

people is they don't even get to know

00:04:17--> 00:04:19

that they no longer control or they have

00:04:19--> 00:04:21

never have any control over the favor of

00:04:21--> 00:04:23

Allah and He gives His favor to whoever

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

He wants. At the Mufasool said, The favor

00:04:25--> 00:04:26

of Allah hears the Quran.

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

They don't even know what they're missing.

00:04:30--> 00:04:33

They have no idea. And Allah says, Part

00:04:33--> 00:04:34

of the goal is they won't even get

00:04:35--> 00:04:37

the arrogant one amongst them, they will not

00:04:37--> 00:04:39

even get to know. They won't even know

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

what they're missing and that's a punishment on

00:04:40--> 00:04:41

them.

00:04:41--> 00:04:43

The ones among them that are curious, Allah

00:04:43--> 00:04:44

will expose them to it and he describes

00:04:44--> 00:04:46

that in other places. But this is among

00:04:46--> 00:04:47

them the ones that are very,

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

you know, they have a sense of supremacy

00:04:51--> 00:04:53

and what has been given to Muhammad is

00:04:54--> 00:04:54

inferior.

00:04:55--> 00:04:57

It's less than what they have. So they'll

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

never consider it. Allah says, yeah. You won't

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

consider it, and I I will no longer

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

let you consider it because of your attitude.

00:05:03--> 00:05:04

So that's the fuddl of Allah that they're

00:05:04--> 00:05:06

missing out of. Now look at what Allah

00:05:06--> 00:05:08

says about his fuddl. He says,

00:05:10--> 00:05:12

other places in the Quran. He

00:05:14--> 00:05:17

especially chooses with His love and care whoever

00:05:17--> 00:05:17

He wants.

00:05:19--> 00:05:21

And Allah owns the ultimate father.

00:05:24--> 00:05:25

He brings into his

00:05:26--> 00:05:27

whoever he wants.

00:05:31--> 00:05:34

Now this idea that this Prophet is not

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

just for the Arabs,

00:05:36--> 00:05:38

he's actually for all of humanity and the

00:05:38--> 00:05:39

doors have been opened for all of humanity.

00:05:40--> 00:05:41

A couple of times in the Quran, Allah

00:05:41--> 00:05:43

says this about his prophet sallallahu alaihi wa

00:05:43--> 00:05:44

sallam. Wabaarsalnaka

00:05:44--> 00:05:47

illa Rahmatan dila aalameen. We didn't send you

00:05:47--> 00:05:50

except as a Rahma for all nations and

00:05:50--> 00:05:51

all peoples.

00:05:52--> 00:05:53

An important thing and another one

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

We didn't send you except as a as

00:05:59--> 00:06:01

as except for all of people

00:06:02--> 00:06:03

to give good news and to give warning.

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

Most people have no idea.

00:06:08--> 00:06:09

Now the thing I want you guys to

00:06:09--> 00:06:11

hear, especially the younger students here, the younger

00:06:11--> 00:06:14

college students and young men and women that

00:06:14--> 00:06:16

are here, I want you to understand something.

00:06:17--> 00:06:20

Islam became global. Islam was meant to be

00:06:20--> 00:06:20

global,

00:06:21--> 00:06:22

not Arab culture.

00:06:24--> 00:06:26

Arab culture is Arab culture,

00:06:26--> 00:06:30

and Allah created Indonesian culture. And Allah also

00:06:30--> 00:06:32

allowed for Sri Lankan culture to develop, and

00:06:32--> 00:06:35

Indian culture to develop, and African cultures to

00:06:35--> 00:06:38

develop. Islam did not come so everyone around

00:06:38--> 00:06:39

the world wears thobes,

00:06:41--> 00:06:42

and everyone says, Hey, what are people in

00:06:42--> 00:06:45

Sarudia wearing? Let me copy that because I

00:06:45--> 00:06:46

want to be more Islamic.

00:06:47--> 00:06:48

That's not why Islam came.

00:06:49--> 00:06:51

Asadida come for that reason.

00:06:51--> 00:06:54

The you know, we developed this idea that

00:06:54--> 00:06:56

the more you look like an Arab, not

00:06:56--> 00:06:58

even every Arab, the more you look like

00:06:58--> 00:06:59

an Arab from the Gulf,

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

the more Islamic you are.

00:07:02--> 00:07:04

I don't know where you got this idea

00:07:04--> 00:07:06

from but it's definitely not the Quran.

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

The Sahaba themselves, they went to Rome.

00:07:10--> 00:07:12

Arab Sahaba went to Rome and put on

00:07:12--> 00:07:13

Roman clothes.

00:07:13--> 00:07:14

They did that.

00:07:15--> 00:07:17

Quran gave guidelines on how you should dress,

00:07:19--> 00:07:21

but not what you should wear,

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

how you should wear,

00:07:23--> 00:07:24

how you should wear.

00:07:26--> 00:07:28

And this idea, it makes me sad sometimes

00:07:28--> 00:07:31

because you know sometimes you beat young men

00:07:31--> 00:07:33

that don't know any Arabic, they don't know

00:07:33--> 00:07:35

much about their deen but they're rocking like

00:07:35--> 00:07:36

the most Khadija.

00:07:36--> 00:07:38

You're from Kosovo bro.

00:07:40--> 00:07:41

Why are you wearing that? I was like,

00:07:41--> 00:07:44

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Akhi.

00:07:46--> 00:07:47

No, no, no, that's all I know. I

00:07:47--> 00:07:48

just wanna sound like

00:07:50--> 00:07:52

Oh you could just say bro, you don't

00:07:52--> 00:07:54

have to say Yaq he's not more Islamic

00:07:54--> 00:07:54

than bro.

00:07:55--> 00:07:56

It's okay

00:07:57--> 00:07:58

It's good.

00:07:59--> 00:08:00

So we we became,

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

you know,

00:08:02--> 00:08:05

the the idea that somehow copying

00:08:05--> 00:08:06

Arab culture

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

makes you more religious or somehow that's a

00:08:09--> 00:08:11

superior culture is actually what Islam came to

00:08:11--> 00:08:12

end.

00:08:13--> 00:08:15

Allah says they began as what? Right?

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

Not

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

They were a culture with no heritage,

00:08:23--> 00:08:25

and Allah decided to elevate them. And by

00:08:25--> 00:08:28

result, he's decided to elevate other nations. But

00:08:28--> 00:08:29

then, here's the tragedy,

00:08:30--> 00:08:32

Who was being taught a lesson in these

00:08:32--> 00:08:34

ayat? I've showed you now. Who was being

00:08:34--> 00:08:36

taught a lesson? Who thought they were better?

00:08:36--> 00:08:37

The Israelites.

00:08:38--> 00:08:40

So alhamdulillah, we learned that lesson. Now no

00:08:40--> 00:08:42

Pakistani thinks that they're better than Bangladeshis.

00:08:43--> 00:08:44

Alhamdulillah.

00:08:44--> 00:08:47

No Indonesian thinks they're better than the Malaysians,

00:08:47--> 00:08:49

or the Malays think, that the Malay Malays

00:08:49--> 00:08:51

think they're better than the Indian Malays. They

00:08:51--> 00:08:53

don't think that ever again.

00:08:53--> 00:08:56

The Albanians and the Kosovans equal in every

00:08:56--> 00:08:57

way.

00:08:58--> 00:09:01

Anyway, the Algerians, Moroccans, and Tunisians, best friends.

00:09:01--> 00:09:03

Nobody thinks they're better than anybody else,

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

you know.

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

The and the

00:09:08--> 00:09:10

you know, everybody gets along.

00:09:10--> 00:09:12

We don't think anybody is less than us

00:09:12--> 00:09:14

or more than us, but you know Muslims

00:09:14--> 00:09:16

in India, Muslims in Pakistan,

00:09:17--> 00:09:18

best friends

00:09:19--> 00:09:19

forever.

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

Right?

00:09:22--> 00:09:24

The whole point of this was now humanity

00:09:25--> 00:09:25

will see

00:09:26--> 00:09:27

a people

00:09:27--> 00:09:30

that come from different cultures, different backgrounds, different

00:09:30--> 00:09:30

clothes,

00:09:31--> 00:09:33

different food, different language,

00:09:33--> 00:09:35

but one thing unites them and makes them

00:09:35--> 00:09:37

equal like nothing else and that's their Islam.

00:09:39--> 00:09:41

And if we don't hold on to that,

00:09:43--> 00:09:44

and by the way, that doesn't mean we

00:09:44--> 00:09:46

should all dress the same way, or look

00:09:46--> 00:09:47

the same way, or talk the same way.

00:09:47--> 00:09:50

Allah's design was diversity, that was his design.

00:09:51--> 00:09:53

But when we start

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

celebrating

00:09:55--> 00:09:58

our culture, our heritage as somehow superior

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

to somebody else's.

00:10:01--> 00:10:03

And then what we did is, it wasn't

00:10:03--> 00:10:06

enough that this was happening in our home,

00:10:06--> 00:10:08

or it was happening in our country. We

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

wanted to bring that into our masjid,

00:10:11--> 00:10:14

to Allah's house, Allah's house. So now you

00:10:14--> 00:10:16

can have a Masjid in in in certain

00:10:16--> 00:10:18

countries, you can have a Masjid where it

00:10:18--> 00:10:20

could be that there's a one community there,

00:10:20--> 00:10:22

the majority in that neighborhood. Right? So you

00:10:22--> 00:10:24

go to Steinway Street, there's a lot of,

00:10:24--> 00:10:26

you know, Moroccans. And so there's a Moroccan

00:10:26--> 00:10:28

Masjid. You can say the Moroccan Masjid. But

00:10:28--> 00:10:29

other people go there too.

00:10:30--> 00:10:32

Right? It's just it's Allah's house, but now

00:10:32--> 00:10:34

when what starts happening in some places is

00:10:34--> 00:10:36

when other people go there, they look at

00:10:36--> 00:10:36

them like,

00:10:39--> 00:10:40

brother,

00:10:40--> 00:10:41

that's not how you pray.

00:10:42--> 00:10:43

They won't talk like that to one of

00:10:43--> 00:10:45

their own, but they'll talk like that when

00:10:45--> 00:10:46

there's a foreigner

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

or somebody else.

00:10:48--> 00:10:49

They'll do that.

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

So one thing that became is

00:10:51--> 00:10:55

certain races started becoming uncomfortable with certain other

00:10:55--> 00:10:55

races.

00:10:56--> 00:10:58

But then there's another kind of Fadl. The

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

Israelites developed the idea that the ones among

00:11:00--> 00:11:02

them who have knowledge are better than the

00:11:02--> 00:11:04

ones among them whom don't have knowledge.

00:11:05--> 00:11:06

The knowledgeable ones

00:11:07--> 00:11:08

are better than the ones who don't have

00:11:08--> 00:11:10

knowledge. And then they had strong disagreements with

00:11:10--> 00:11:13

each other. So what did Alhamdulillah Muslims never

00:11:13--> 00:11:13

do?

00:11:14--> 00:11:15

If you walk into a masjid and you

00:11:15--> 00:11:17

don't look like, you don't pray like everybody

00:11:17--> 00:11:19

else in that masjid is praying,

00:11:20--> 00:11:23

your beard does not fit the uniform beard

00:11:23--> 00:11:24

standard for that masjid

00:11:25--> 00:11:27

or you you know,

00:11:27--> 00:11:28

we start

00:11:29--> 00:11:31

this guy, I see.

00:11:32--> 00:11:34

Unfortunately, he's going to hell

00:11:35--> 00:11:36

because he's not wearing the he's not wearing

00:11:36--> 00:11:37

the gender uniform.

00:11:38--> 00:11:40

Clearly, nobody gave him the memo.

00:11:41--> 00:11:44

This idea of the sense of superiority over

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

others

00:11:45--> 00:11:46

afflicted this Ummah

00:11:47--> 00:11:49

and this is the exact thing. I'm telling

00:11:49--> 00:11:52

you Allah pointed out that the Israelites had

00:11:52--> 00:11:53

this mentality

00:11:54--> 00:11:57

and Allah corrected that mentality and gave this

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

this Deen to the entire world.

00:11:59--> 00:12:02

And now each one of us became mini

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

Israelites.

00:12:04--> 00:12:06

That's the sad thing. It's hard for me

00:12:06--> 00:12:08

to say that, but we have to you

00:12:08--> 00:12:10

can't fix something if you don't identify the

00:12:10--> 00:12:12

problem. There's a hadith of the prophet salallahu

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

alaihi wa sallam,

00:12:14--> 00:12:16

the believer is a mirror of the believer.

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

If there's a stain on here, the mirror

00:12:17--> 00:12:19

will show there's a stain. And the stain

00:12:19--> 00:12:21

that I see that hurts me is that

00:12:21--> 00:12:23

we became either nationalistic,

00:12:24--> 00:12:26

tribal, we became extremely tribal,

00:12:26--> 00:12:29

or we became extremely arrogant in terms of

00:12:29--> 00:12:31

our own religious understanding.

00:12:32--> 00:12:34

I learned from my shaykh, this is the

00:12:34--> 00:12:35

hap, which means that all of you are

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

ba'til heads.

00:12:37--> 00:12:39

You know, the all of you are wrong.

00:12:39--> 00:12:40

None of you can be right.

00:12:41--> 00:12:44

This kind of like us versus them,

00:12:44--> 00:12:46

me versus everyone else, this kind of mentality

00:12:46--> 00:12:48

is what Islam came to eradicate.

00:12:50--> 00:12:52

And just think about early Islam for a

00:12:52--> 00:12:52

moment.

00:12:53--> 00:12:55

Just sometimes you should just stop and think

00:12:55--> 00:12:56

about early Islam

00:12:57--> 00:12:58

and you'll be amazed.

00:12:59--> 00:12:59

When Rasulullah

00:13:01--> 00:13:03

gave his final speech,

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

and he

00:13:05--> 00:13:06

said, The ones who are here should spread

00:13:06--> 00:13:08

to the ones who are not here. How

00:13:08--> 00:13:10

many people were in front of him? 1,000.

00:13:11--> 00:13:13

Are they all the same level of knowledge?

00:13:13--> 00:13:15

The thousands of people. What do you think?

00:13:15--> 00:13:16

Same or no?

00:13:17--> 00:13:19

Some people know more. Some people know less.

00:13:20--> 00:13:22

Then we say, by the way, when you

00:13:23--> 00:13:25

share with someone else, make sure you bring

00:13:25--> 00:13:26

them back so they learn from the proper

00:13:26--> 00:13:28

highest knowledgeable people and then only and don't

00:13:28--> 00:13:31

only otherwise don't share anything, don't say anything.

00:13:31--> 00:13:33

Islam spread organically

00:13:34--> 00:13:36

and Islam somebody knew 2 Surahs, they went

00:13:36--> 00:13:37

and shared what?

00:13:38--> 00:13:39

2 Surahs.

00:13:39--> 00:13:42

Somebody knew the entire Quran, they shared the

00:13:42--> 00:13:43

entire Quran.

00:13:44--> 00:13:44

Somebody

00:13:45--> 00:13:47

knew how to pray, they just taught somebody

00:13:47--> 00:13:50

else what? How to pray. That's it. That's

00:13:50--> 00:13:52

what I learned and they shared it. And

00:13:52--> 00:13:55

the knowledge organically started spreading. And that's the

00:13:55--> 00:13:57

early victories of Islam.

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

They spread in this way. What did we

00:13:59--> 00:14:02

do centuries later? No. No. No. No. No.

00:14:02--> 00:14:03

You can't pray.

00:14:03--> 00:14:05

Well, I can't teach you how to pray.

00:14:05--> 00:14:07

I'm not certified. I didn't get 4 master's

00:14:07--> 00:14:08

degrees in how to pray.

00:14:09--> 00:14:10

I can't tell you how to pray.

00:14:11--> 00:14:12

Me? Teach you Fatiha?

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

No. No. No.

00:14:15--> 00:14:17

When it comes to Fatiha, I know as

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

much as a Christian

00:14:18--> 00:14:20

or a Jew or an atheist. How can

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

I teach? You need to get a certified

00:14:22--> 00:14:24

PhD to teach you how to recite the

00:14:24--> 00:14:25

Fatiha.

00:14:25--> 00:14:26

Crazy people.

00:14:27--> 00:14:28

This this is insane.

00:14:29--> 00:14:31

This is not how Islam began.

00:14:31--> 00:14:33

We took the Fafal of Allah and removed

00:14:33--> 00:14:35

it. People started, they learned a little, and

00:14:35--> 00:14:37

then it puts pressure on me if I'm

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

gonna share it with someone else, I should

00:14:38--> 00:14:40

try to learn some more.

00:14:40--> 00:14:42

And everybody took personal responsibility.

00:14:43--> 00:14:44

What did we do? No. No. No. No.

00:14:45--> 00:14:46

Responsibility goes only to scholars.

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

I don't have to do anything.

00:14:50--> 00:14:52

The average Muslim had to be a minimum

00:14:52--> 00:14:54

level of educated so they can be a

00:14:54--> 00:14:55

contributor.

00:14:56--> 00:14:56

You see?

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

So they can be helpful.

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

You didn't have to all become scholars. We

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

didn't have to become scholars, but we did

00:15:02--> 00:15:03

have to become learned.

00:15:03--> 00:15:05

And you have to find somebody you can

00:15:05--> 00:15:06

learn from and they can and then they

00:15:06--> 00:15:08

get asked so somebody comes and asks me,

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

I don't have the answer. Now I have

00:15:09--> 00:15:11

to go learn from someone else and then

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

share back.

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

And it wasn't about pride or ego.

00:15:15--> 00:15:16

The problem is when you have one group

00:15:16--> 00:15:18

of people that says, we have all the

00:15:18--> 00:15:19

knowledge, come and ask us, if you don't

00:15:19--> 00:15:22

ask us then you're you're gonna get misguided,

00:15:22--> 00:15:24

then those people develop their own kind of

00:15:24--> 00:15:24

arrogance.

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

They develop their own kind of elite status,

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

which happened in previous religions.

00:15:30--> 00:15:31

There needs to be a

00:15:32--> 00:15:32

a transparent

00:15:33--> 00:15:35

connection between scholars and the people

00:15:35--> 00:15:38

and everything in between, an open transparent connection.

00:15:38--> 00:15:41

And that was what was that's what's missing

00:15:41--> 00:15:43

so far. Okay. Anyway,

00:15:43--> 00:15:45

look at the open invitation. I'll wrap this

00:15:45--> 00:15:46

up quickly.

00:15:50--> 00:15:53

Whoever would obey Allah and the Messenger, whoever

00:15:53--> 00:15:56

Did Allah specify which ethnicity, which nation?

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

The open invite, whoever would obey Allah and

00:15:58--> 00:16:00

the Messenger, then they are among those who

00:16:00--> 00:16:02

Allah has blessed from among the Prophets, and

00:16:02--> 00:16:04

the ones who accepted the truth, and the

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

martyrs and good people.

00:16:07--> 00:16:09

And what a beautiful company that is. Meaning,

00:16:09--> 00:16:12

if you join these people, you're good people,

00:16:12--> 00:16:14

you are considered in the same group as

00:16:14--> 00:16:16

the shuhada, the siddiqeen and you can even

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

join the company of the prophets. You can

00:16:18--> 00:16:19

be with them in Jannah too.

00:16:20--> 00:16:22

(QS. Al Fadhul Ghazal Khademillah 3:5) That is

00:16:22--> 00:16:25

the favor from Allah. Before fadhul again, that's

00:16:25--> 00:16:27

an open invite from Allah. It's not just

00:16:27--> 00:16:29

an invite to accept Islam, it's an invite

00:16:29--> 00:16:31

to eventually be in the company of prophets.

00:16:32--> 00:16:34

What a fadhu of Allah!

00:16:34--> 00:16:36

All the heroes of our history, we can

00:16:36--> 00:16:37

join them.

00:16:37--> 00:16:38

We can be among them.

00:16:40--> 00:16:42

Now the the other side of the fadhan.

00:16:42--> 00:16:44

This is the scary side of the fadhan.

00:16:44--> 00:16:46

Please listen to this. I know it's towards

00:16:46--> 00:16:47

the end of the hour. Listen to this

00:16:47--> 00:16:48

part carefully,

00:16:50--> 00:16:52

please. Those of you who claim to believe,

00:16:54--> 00:16:57

Whoever among you starts walking away from his

00:16:57--> 00:16:58

or her religion.

00:16:58--> 00:17:01

You start taking steps back from your religion.

00:17:03--> 00:17:05

Then Allah will bring a new nation.

00:17:06--> 00:17:07

Allah will bring

00:17:08--> 00:17:09

a new nation.

00:17:12--> 00:17:14

A nation who He will love and they

00:17:14--> 00:17:15

will love Him.

00:17:16--> 00:17:19

Meaning Allah is saying you're taking steps back

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

because clearly you don't love Me enough.

00:17:22--> 00:17:24

That's why you're taking steps back. And if

00:17:24--> 00:17:26

you don't love me enough, there's plenty of

00:17:26--> 00:17:28

people that I will love and they will

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

what?

00:17:29--> 00:17:30

They'll love me back.

00:17:30--> 00:17:32

And if you, if you want to take

00:17:32--> 00:17:34

steps back, that's fine. That's your choice. But

00:17:34--> 00:17:36

the word, the invitation is open to the

00:17:36--> 00:17:38

entire world. You're not a special race

00:17:39--> 00:17:41

that only has to be you. Now it's

00:17:41--> 00:17:43

open to the whole world. So on the

00:17:43--> 00:17:44

one side that's a good thing. On the

00:17:44--> 00:17:46

other side it also makes us replaceable. Do

00:17:46--> 00:17:47

you understand?

00:17:48--> 00:17:50

It could be that the the Pakistanis,

00:17:50--> 00:17:51

the Bangladeshis,

00:17:51--> 00:17:54

the the Egyptians, the Moroccans, they don't uphold

00:17:54--> 00:17:56

Allah's book and Allah decides, No. You know

00:17:56--> 00:17:58

what? I'm gonna replace you with the Germans

00:17:58--> 00:17:59

in a 100 years.

00:18:00--> 00:18:01

They're they're all gonna be they're gonna carry

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

my religion

00:18:03--> 00:18:04

now. I'm gonna replace you with the Italians.

00:18:05--> 00:18:07

They're gonna carry my religion. He could do

00:18:07--> 00:18:07

that.

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

He's done that before.

00:18:09--> 00:18:11

He's done that before. The tataar,

00:18:12--> 00:18:14

the vast majority of them who slaughtered Muslims

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

were then basically carrying Islam for the next

00:18:18--> 00:18:19

few centuries.

00:18:22--> 00:18:24

Allah will replace one nation with

00:18:24--> 00:18:25

another nation completely.

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

He then describes, what is it that about

00:18:34--> 00:18:36

them that I will love? Why will they

00:18:36--> 00:18:38

replace you? What quality will they have that

00:18:38--> 00:18:40

clearly you don't have? They'll be very humble

00:18:40--> 00:18:41

before believers

00:18:42--> 00:18:44

and they'll be tough against enemies.

00:18:45--> 00:18:46

You know what Muslims became?

00:18:47--> 00:18:49

Really tough against each other,

00:18:50--> 00:18:51

very humble before enemies.

00:18:53--> 00:18:54

Isn't it?

00:18:54--> 00:18:55

Allah says, (QS.

00:18:58--> 00:19:00

3) They'll struggle in the path of Allah.

00:19:03--> 00:19:04

And they will not be afraid of the

00:19:04--> 00:19:07

criticism that comes from anyone who criticizes.

00:19:08--> 00:19:11

They will not be people who fear criticism.

00:19:12--> 00:19:15

Now just internalize these words. How many people

00:19:15--> 00:19:18

take steps back from Islam because they are

00:19:18--> 00:19:19

afraid of what?

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

Criticism.

00:19:22--> 00:19:23

Criticism from the family,

00:19:24--> 00:19:26

criticism from the workplace, criticism from the university,

00:19:27--> 00:19:29

criticism from people riding on the bus, criticism

00:19:29--> 00:19:31

of grit I can't do this thing. I

00:19:31--> 00:19:33

don't you know, Allah says right? You want

00:19:33--> 00:19:35

to take steps back? Your choice.

00:19:36--> 00:19:38

Allah will bring about new people

00:19:39--> 00:19:40

that He will love

00:19:41--> 00:19:42

and they will love him.

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

I met somebody who told me they have

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

a really hard time where they

00:19:47--> 00:19:49

women, for example, they struggle with hijab for

00:19:49--> 00:19:51

different reasons. I've realized that after talking to

00:19:51--> 00:19:52

hundreds of sisters,

00:19:53--> 00:19:54

it's not one reason.

00:19:54--> 00:19:55

And I empathize.

00:19:56--> 00:19:57

One reason though was really epic.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

I've never heard that one before, so I'll

00:19:59--> 00:20:02

tell you. I just think that because I

00:20:02--> 00:20:03

come from a country, the women that wear

00:20:03--> 00:20:05

hijab are all villagers,

00:20:05--> 00:20:07

so they're uneducated. So when I see a

00:20:07--> 00:20:08

I see a hijabi woman, I think of

00:20:08--> 00:20:11

an uneducated woman. I don't wanna be associated

00:20:11--> 00:20:13

with uneducated people. That's why I don't wear

00:20:13--> 00:20:14

hijab. I'm like, oh, that's a new one.

00:20:16--> 00:20:18

You're I mean, just honest enough to share

00:20:18--> 00:20:19

with me because most people when they have

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

that kind of an ugly opinion, they don't

00:20:21--> 00:20:22

share it. They just say, I I just

00:20:23--> 00:20:24

you know, something in me.

00:20:25--> 00:20:28

But that's pretty raw. That's, that's honest. I,

00:20:28--> 00:20:29

I respect it.

00:20:29--> 00:20:30

I respect it.

00:20:30--> 00:20:31

And

00:20:31--> 00:20:33

I'm like and on the flip side, you

00:20:33--> 00:20:36

have a young woman who, you know, wears

00:20:36--> 00:20:40

the hijab, gets rejected from college university applications,

00:20:40--> 00:20:42

gets rejected from job offers because she's wearing

00:20:42--> 00:20:43

the hijab

00:20:43--> 00:20:46

and then doesn't Allah keeps opening. He closes

00:20:46--> 00:20:47

a 1,000 doors and he opens a new

00:20:47--> 00:20:48

door

00:20:49--> 00:20:51

from where she couldn't even imagine and she

00:20:51--> 00:20:53

gets her education, gets her education and she's

00:20:53--> 00:20:55

some of the highest ranking PhDs

00:20:55--> 00:20:57

in many countries are hijabi women.

00:20:58--> 00:21:00

Right? And I I look at that and

00:21:00--> 00:21:02

say, okay, here's a person who says, I

00:21:02--> 00:21:04

don't wanna be associated with what?

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

Uneducated people, and that person wasn't able to

00:21:07--> 00:21:08

complete their education.

00:21:11--> 00:21:12

And on the flip side,

00:21:12--> 00:21:15

you got people that are ignorant villagers,

00:21:16--> 00:21:17

the Ummiyyin apparently

00:21:19--> 00:21:21

that are reaching the height of Heights,

00:21:21--> 00:21:22

right?

00:21:22--> 00:21:23

So

00:21:23--> 00:21:24

Allah will replace

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

He will replace individuals, He will replace nations.

00:21:28--> 00:21:29

If that's our attitude, Allah says I don't

00:21:29--> 00:21:30

need your attitude.

00:21:31--> 00:21:33

Take it somewhere else, take it to TikTok.

00:21:34--> 00:21:35

Okay. That's not what he says, that's what

00:21:35--> 00:21:36

I'm saying. Okay.

00:21:40--> 00:21:40

Same words,

00:21:41--> 00:21:42

that is the favor of Allah. He gives

00:21:42--> 00:21:44

it to whoever he wants. Isn't that the

00:21:44--> 00:21:45

word we're studying?

00:21:46--> 00:21:48

Here he said, I've opened it up to

00:21:48--> 00:21:49

all nations. That's the favor of Allah. There

00:21:49--> 00:21:51

he says, by the way, you take steps

00:21:51--> 00:21:53

back. I have many other nations to choose

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

from.

00:21:54--> 00:21:55

That is the favor of Allah. He gives

00:21:55--> 00:21:57

it to whoever he wants. And now

00:21:58--> 00:21:58

the words

00:22:01--> 00:22:03

and because they are both Huwa, I'm being

00:22:03--> 00:22:05

technical but that's okay. You'll get over it.

00:22:05--> 00:22:07

Both Huwa, it gives you two meanings at

00:22:07--> 00:22:09

the same time. What it one gives you

00:22:09--> 00:22:11

one meaning it gives you is that is

00:22:11--> 00:22:12

the favor of Allah. He gives it to

00:22:12--> 00:22:14

whoever Allah wants.

00:22:14--> 00:22:16

The other meaning is that is the favor

00:22:16--> 00:22:18

of Allah. He gives it to whoever actually

00:22:18--> 00:22:19

wants it.

00:22:20--> 00:22:22

I'll say that again. That is the favor

00:22:22--> 00:22:23

of Allah. He gives it to whoever

00:22:24--> 00:22:24

actually

00:22:26--> 00:22:26

wants

00:22:28--> 00:22:30

it. So that you don't get to say,

00:22:30--> 00:22:32

He chooses whoever he wants. What what can

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

I do?

00:22:34--> 00:22:36

No. You didn't want it

00:22:36--> 00:22:38

because if you want it there's no way

00:22:38--> 00:22:39

he won't give it to you.

00:22:39--> 00:22:41

There's no way he won't give it to

00:22:41--> 00:22:41

you. SubhanAllah.

00:22:42--> 00:22:43

Yeah. There's

00:22:44--> 00:22:46

let me just see, oh we are we

00:22:48--> 00:22:49

okay I want to finish this ayah because

00:22:49--> 00:22:51

I want to start the next session with

00:22:51--> 00:22:53

the next ayah because that's heavy.

00:22:55--> 00:22:56

So Allah's intention

00:22:57--> 00:22:59

Allah wants I translate it Allah wants. Yeah?

00:23:00--> 00:23:02

The want in Arabic is 2 words

00:23:02--> 00:23:02

and

00:23:04--> 00:23:06

So the of Allah is the intent of

00:23:06--> 00:23:09

Allah and the of Allah is also the

00:23:09--> 00:23:11

intent of Allah. But what's the difference between

00:23:11--> 00:23:11

them?

00:23:12--> 00:23:13

I want you to it's a subtle Quran

00:23:13--> 00:23:15

thing because you know in translation you'll just

00:23:15--> 00:23:17

see Allah wants, but I want you to

00:23:17--> 00:23:18

know the difference between them, yeah?

00:23:19--> 00:23:21

So the word comes from shay,

00:23:22--> 00:23:24

shay. You know what shay means in Arabic?

00:23:26--> 00:23:28

A thing, something solid.

00:23:29--> 00:23:32

When Allah has decided something and it's set,

00:23:32--> 00:23:35

it's solid, then you see what word?

00:23:37--> 00:23:40

If you see irada, you'll see Allah wants

00:23:40--> 00:23:42

something but it will depend on you.

00:23:42--> 00:23:43

For example,

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

Allah will

00:23:46--> 00:23:46

say

00:23:47--> 00:23:50

Allah wants by teaching you the laws, Allah

00:23:50--> 00:23:51

wants to make your life lighter.

00:23:52--> 00:23:54

Allah wants to make your life what?

00:23:55--> 00:23:57

Lighter. But whether your life becomes lighter or

00:23:57--> 00:23:58

not depends on who?

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

Depends on you. Because if you don't follow

00:24:02--> 00:24:04

the laws, your life will not become

00:24:04--> 00:24:06

lighter. But if Allah has the

00:24:07--> 00:24:08

if He does

00:24:09--> 00:24:11

that means whether you apply it or not,

00:24:11--> 00:24:13

your life will definitely become

00:24:13--> 00:24:15

light, it's guaranteed, it's done, it's solidified.

00:24:16--> 00:24:16

But

00:24:17--> 00:24:18

means Allah has made the intent,

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

but now it's up to you whether you

00:24:20--> 00:24:23

want that intent to be fulfilled. (QS. Al

00:24:23--> 00:24:26

Mujadilah: 3) Allah wants to make things clear

00:24:26--> 00:24:27

for you.

00:24:28--> 00:24:29

Allah says, Allah wants to make things clear

00:24:29--> 00:24:31

for you. Is there a part of that

00:24:31--> 00:24:32

that depends on you?

00:24:33--> 00:24:35

It does, doesn't it? You have to go

00:24:35--> 00:24:37

learn, you have to seek that clarity.

00:24:39--> 00:24:41

If you don't do your part, then it

00:24:41--> 00:24:42

will not become what?

00:24:43--> 00:24:45

Clear. If that was the mashiyyah of Allah,

00:24:45--> 00:24:46

whether you try it or not, everybody would

00:24:46--> 00:24:47

have clarity

00:24:48--> 00:24:49

without any attempt at themselves. So that's the

00:24:49--> 00:24:51

difference between and

00:24:52--> 00:24:54

and here, guys, you're distracting everybody.

00:24:57--> 00:24:57

It's okay.

00:24:58--> 00:24:58

What happened?

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

Nothing happened? This is nothing?

00:25:03--> 00:25:05

3 people I would have tolerated. 4 or

00:25:05--> 00:25:06

5 then everybody's like,

00:25:07--> 00:25:08

what are they talking about?

00:25:10--> 00:25:12

God, this is this is the tragedy of

00:25:12--> 00:25:12

education.

00:25:13--> 00:25:14

I don't get tired of telling the same

00:25:14--> 00:25:16

jokes as you may have already known

00:25:17--> 00:25:19

so I'll tell you the same old joke.

00:25:19--> 00:25:21

It's not a joke. It's actually it's my

00:25:21--> 00:25:23

jokes are actually my trauma is what it

00:25:23--> 00:25:24

is.

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

K.

00:25:27--> 00:25:28

So I made the mistake

00:25:29--> 00:25:30

of teaching an Arabic program,

00:25:31--> 00:25:32

Arabic class

00:25:32--> 00:25:33

in a classroom

00:25:34--> 00:25:37

where imagine my class, my my podium was

00:25:37--> 00:25:39

there and behind me was a giant window.

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

And my students are looking at me and

00:25:41--> 00:25:42

they're also

00:25:43--> 00:25:44

looking out the window.

00:25:45--> 00:25:47

And behind the window in the distance there

00:25:47--> 00:25:47

was a highway.

00:25:49--> 00:25:49

Cars,

00:25:52--> 00:25:53

I kid you not,

00:25:54--> 00:25:55

my students,

00:25:56--> 00:25:58

I could look at their face and tell

00:25:58--> 00:25:58

if there's traffic.

00:26:02--> 00:26:04

When there's traffic, they're doing this.

00:26:09--> 00:26:11

When there is no traffic, they do.

00:26:16--> 00:26:18

One of my students really likes trucks.

00:26:19--> 00:26:20

I can tell if there's a truck on

00:26:20--> 00:26:22

the highway. He's looking at me, look at

00:26:22--> 00:26:23

me, and there

00:26:27--> 00:26:28

he goes.

00:26:30--> 00:26:32

When you're in a lecture, everything other than

00:26:32--> 00:26:33

the lecture becomes interesting.

00:26:35--> 00:26:37

Poor Balaam comes and talks to Osman about

00:26:37--> 00:26:39

some issue and you're all like,

00:26:40--> 00:26:41

what are they?

00:26:42--> 00:26:43

I want to know.

00:26:43--> 00:26:45

I want to know what they're talking about.

00:26:45--> 00:26:47

If this was not a lecture, you would

00:26:47--> 00:26:48

not care.

00:26:49--> 00:26:51

That would not be important to you. But

00:26:51--> 00:26:53

just because it's a lecture, this becomes zul.

00:26:53--> 00:26:55

You guys know this in Jumah Khudbah. Jumah

00:26:55--> 00:26:55

Khudbah

00:26:56--> 00:26:58

is you know, it's mashaba. Some of you,

00:26:58--> 00:26:59

you hear

00:27:02--> 00:27:05

Like that's in between your Ashabul Kahf. Right?

00:27:05--> 00:27:08

That's it's Friday, so it makes sense. So

00:27:10--> 00:27:12

But what do people do? They're like, Now

00:27:12--> 00:27:13

who's gonna walk in?

00:27:18--> 00:27:20

And this Masjid is especially challenging because the

00:27:20--> 00:27:23

carpet is very simple. So you can't even

00:27:23--> 00:27:24

look at the lines that go like this

00:27:24--> 00:27:26

and that and make up your own faces

00:27:26--> 00:27:28

in it, you know.

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

So

00:27:36--> 00:27:37

That is the favor of Allah. He gives

00:27:37--> 00:27:39

it to whoever He decides to give it

00:27:39--> 00:27:41

to and whoever makes the firm decision to

00:27:41--> 00:27:45

get it. Shaa strong decision. Will solid will.

00:27:45--> 00:27:48

And Allah possesses the ultimate favor. Many Mufasirul

00:27:49--> 00:27:50

have commented over and over again that the

00:27:50--> 00:27:53

Fadl of Allah is also referring to the

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

Quran.

00:27:54--> 00:27:56

Allah possesses the ultimate favor that is the

00:27:56--> 00:27:57

favor of Allah is the Quran.

00:27:59--> 00:28:00

Is the fadl of Allah.

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

Yazakihim is the fadul of Allah. Yazakihim is

00:28:04--> 00:28:08

the fadul of Allah. Abba'asafil umbeeena Rasulan Rasul

00:28:08--> 00:28:10

himself is in Quranu Yamshi. The Quran walking

00:28:10--> 00:28:13

around is the prophet sallallahu alaihi wasalam. Right?

00:28:13--> 00:28:14

So all of it boils down to the

00:28:14--> 00:28:16

word of Allah and that is the favor

00:28:16--> 00:28:19

of Allah that they're missing out on.

00:28:20--> 00:28:23

Assalamu alaikum everyone. There are almost 50,000 students

00:28:23--> 00:28:25

around the world that are interested on top

00:28:25--> 00:28:27

of the students we have in studying the

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

Quran and its meanings and being able to

00:28:29--> 00:28:31

learn that and share that with family and

00:28:31--> 00:28:33

friends, and they need sponsorships, which is not

00:28:33--> 00:28:35

very expensive. So if you can help sponsor

00:28:35--> 00:28:35

students

00:28:36--> 00:28:38

on Bayinah TV, please do so and visit

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

our sponsorship page. I appreciate it so much.

00:28:39--> 00:28:41

And pray that Allah gives our mission success,

00:28:41--> 00:28:43

and we're able to share the meanings of

00:28:43--> 00:28:45

world over.

00:28:43--> 00:28:45

world over.
