As the loss of Hannah Tyler to accept from us our good deeds and Oscar las panatela to benefit us with
the knowledge that we learn and to make our actions all sincere for him. We are continuing with
the book of Stan Li in the garden of the where, for Imam nawawi Rahim Allah, who in this book, he tries to outline the basic components of the path towards knowing Allah subhanho wa Taala. And until now we have spoken about the main aspects of
the introductions to a class. And we're just going to inshallah, today finish off this whole
aspect of the concept of loss. So that will prepare us to talk in Sharla further on, later on about
about truthfulness with the loss of Hannah.
So, up to now, we have lots of the righteous people have spoken about, you know, we've had lots of quotations about loss, can anybody remember any of those quotations about class or any of the meanings?
yeah, okay. You like that one. So that was if, if somebody if somebody found or witnessed in their class,
their class, so if they, they were seeing a class in their class, then he said their class is in need of class. So it's like something that if they're aware of it, and they're something that they are
accounting for, if you like, then it it loses the essence of the class, which is to forget that you are there. You know, and not like you are monitoring but it's almost like a form of, of, of arrogance, to say that or to think that. Anything else. Any other things over class.
Okay, I want to
test you too much on that.
But we'll just move on in Charlottetown. So, there's only a few more quotations.
We also said that inshallah we will just have a look at some of the biography of some of the righteous people as well who are quoted in, in this book, charlatan. So another one of the quotations that you might know in a race that one uses Abner Hussain Rahim Allah, Allah as Xu
as rushing for dunya Allah floss. We said that one of the most
rarest things, you know, one of the most precious things to find in this life is a loss because as we mentioned before, it's something which is not very easy to achieve. It needs that dedication and all the generations that we spoken about before shows how hard and difficult it is.
an ABS man
Missouri, b o l magrabi. Rahim Allah Allah Paul.
s la salam, I think this one we mentioned the last time but we'll just repeat it again. a colossal
malayaka nolin scfe have.
So now is different levels of the class that he's talking about. The general public people's loss is the basic class of what we're talking about here, which is that the self has no shares, or no opportunity, no portion in it. And that's why it's one of the hardest things on the next. So that is the basic general public, if you like a class, whereas he says a colossal How are the people who are more chosen, and the special people that people are closer to a law, their class happens in my area, I lay him lobby him. It's something that obviously goes over them. It's like something that overcome over overrides them, and something that that happens to them automatically, not because of them, not
that they have to think we're doing a class and so on. It's something that comes to them because they have reached such a level where it has become very automated in the whole system that they are living.
For top Domino, part one home and happy magazine.
Well, after Karla home, Ali Roja, well Allahu Allah at that. So all the good deeds happened from them. And it's like they are totally segregated from these
good deeds. So again, you can see how it is, and something which is it's, it's a very high level, and I think we shouldn't really dwell too much on it because we're trying, we're trying to concern ourselves with the general public laws of the general class, which is in that in itself is the higher thing to achieve.
So after that, we talked, there's some few other things. And now he talks a little bit about some of the opinions of some of the shoe about if a person does manage to have claws what kind of things would he attain and and we have to understand that this is not
something that is is actually
formulated by a hadith or confirmed by the saying of the prophet SAW Selim. But it's more to it's more a kind of experience or these are llama, they would have experienced certain things and they would have assessed certain things and that's where they would make that
assumption. And for example, you have the whole concept of
which you will understand when we talk about we have the concept of
medicine and Rokia. Yeah. Now a loss of Hannah Todd has told us generally that the Quran is a she fat. Yeah, uh, one of the she fat is a little foreign. So we know that the Quran is a Shiva, but how does the Shiva of the Quran work, which are the verses that will deal with specific matters, how is it to be read all these things
are left to to a certain element to a certain element and the certain elements related to
because some of the things the professor mentioned to us, but the majority he didn't mention to us. And that's why even you have the basic Hadith of the hadith of Al Fatiha of that Sahabi when he cured the chieftain of the tribe, by reciting surah, Al Fatiha
when he went back to the Prophet size, and and and it was a cure, it helped that person who was stung by a snake. It was a coup for him, the professor said, Man Baraka and Haruka How did you know how do you know is this sort of it has to be used in that way.
So that was almost like an he had it was like an opinion. And similarly, you can extend that to a wider perspective. We know for example that the prophet SAW Selim also said and Hubbard who saw that
the war on liquidity the Illa, Assam so the black seed is a medicine for all diseases except death. Okay? How does that work? It is open to trial and error investigation research because it doesn't mean that you just need to have this or that will cure it, no, it must be taken in a certain way must be used in a certain format, etc, etc. So similarly, with the Quran, you will have that same thing. So certain verses read in a certain way is related to how people they do the esteemed Barton which the head of the piano and you have, for example, a famous one, which is
you see, like she shared a multimedia. He is very literal in this life, and he's probably one of the people who would be very specific that and where's the Hadeeth and where's the Dalian? And yet he was somebody who gave
a recommendation that when a woman is giving birth, to recite surah Zilla, so that makes the the birth easy. Yeah. But what he said he said that, yeah, but when you ask him, what is the delay it was
the hardihood there's no Hadees. So it is more about an ht head of how certain verses may be used in a certain way. And obviously with the permission or loss of Hannah Tada.
The Cure would happen. So that's why it's very important to understand this because some people the literalist amongst the Muslims, they're always looking for us, you must be specific Hadeeth a specific way of you know, and if there isn't, then it's canceled and this is not how
the LMR practice of the
They looked at things and indeed there was elements of trial research indicates whether it's related to medicine or whether it's related to other aspects. And that's why I give that as an introduction to what we're going to hear now. And this is related. He said, what a winner and we'll see the jelly Lima, a Tabby Macaulay on the line and McCool was one of the students of Abdullah Ibrahim bass. So what did McCool say? He said, ma abdon got arbaeen A Yeoman e la hora, Tiana B, Al hikmah mean, lb he, what is it, that a person
who does a floss or practice loss? Absolutely. For 40 days, then the springs of wisdom, will will sprout from his heart and from his tongue. So it's like a fruit of the class that he will have these kinds of things you will be able to, you know, say things and, and this is not an English general concept. It's not something to be
to be astonished by. Because we know that the source of ailment and Hickman is Allah subhanho wa Taala. And not all knowledge can be attained through learning Yes, enamel l mobitel. knowledge can be attained a certain extent through learning but not all knowledge can be attained through learning. That's why Allah subhanaw taala said,
the double law where you are lemo qumola fear Allah and the law will teach you and sometimes somebody might have a certain connection with a loss pantai that Allah gives him a key to an aspect of knowledge, which nobody else has been given before. Okay, and it is something that they are seeing and, and that's why so Pamela, you have, if you think about it, you see that every generation, every generation, throughout Islamic history, there's always been people who have been producing Tafseer of the Quran, you know, starting right from the time of the Sahaba right till this day, there are people who are producing Tafseer and they are people who are producing
their understanding of the, of the Tour de Boer, and the comprehension of the Quran. And if Tafseer
was an absolute science be sorry, if it was a if it was a, a restricted limited science, meaning that the verses could only have one meaning, then has the Tafseer would have been, you know, would have been finished maybe in the third or fourth generation after the digital because everybody would have seen unless it's nothing new to add. But you will find that every time that he might find some specific aspect and see something in a verse which nobody else has seen before and you understand the verse in a certain way. And this is the whole instruction of the Quran FLR into the baronial Quran, so there is an instruction to continue reflect on the Quran. And so if Allah Subhana Allah
chooses, you could be that somebody who lives in this age, and in this society can understand the Quran in a certain context, which was not understood before. And that couldn't be right, because the Quran is one of the things that it's hijab as I leave it in the pilot. So Latin COVID Ajay evil on its bewilderment will not ever end it will continue to be willed to people with the things that comes from it. So this is a similar thing that McCool is saying here is that if a person has their flaws, he's used that 40 days again, probably based on his experience and research not based on the specific Hadith.
Although there might be some
aspects of taking it from us or else then that person will get as a result of that the wisdom coming from his tongue and from his heart.
He said what we know and Sal l to study rahima law. And this is a similar way, the similar generation menza he deftly Dunia arbaeen a woman saw the economy malbay Mukhlas on phenolic vihara LaHood keramat. Woman let me have harleigh who find the hora de mahshid. fi is
so excited to study again Sharla. In future we'll also go through the biography of him because again, one of the noble people of Islam. He said that whoever experience experiences or works on Zoho, which is abstinence from the dounia for 40 days, having that truthfulness from his heart and having a class in that so there's truthfulness there's a class then
He will be honored by certain gifts and these honorable gifts are things like miracles, but we will talk about that indeed him no he does talk about this later on in the book and whoever does not see these kinds of things happening and it is then his can see that the truthfulness probably is not there in his art.
And so, he was asked how will he get these gifts what kind of gifts are there? And so, he said yeah, photo Maya Sha kemira Sha, mean hastily a sharp, he can take what he wants, like he wants from wherever he wants. And this is the kind of gift that Allah subhanaw taala gives now, our, the, the feed of the Sunnah in regards to these gifts, is that
just like Aloha, the athlete is that keramat are like miracles that are lost pantalla can give anyone of his creation, his special creation, but they are given not on not for the reason of a challenge challenging people. So unlike the profits, they are given the kurama as a sign of a more geezer and that's why it's called the mortgage is a mortgage is a means to
challenge and to weaken or to also what I'm looking for to
help us here was
therefore the HA
not undermining your user who is also it's like to to to nullify his any his stance Yeah, it's sure it's all has the hammer there's a specific word for Allah not everything. So the agenda the mortgages, front comes from that word, which is urges somebody to be weak cannot able to do it. So why don't you say is to give such a powerful miracle that the person cannot deal with that the opposite opposition cannot and that's how the Quran is a mighty so because it was there challenging them bring something like it, bring a Quran like it bring 10 verse chapters like it bring one chapter. No, they couldn't, they couldn't. So it was a jazz, that's that's what the margins are. So
the kurama is different from a monetization in that the margins that are given to the profits, because they used it as a challenge. Whereas the kurama is not given to challenge it, but it's just like a gift that allows pantalla my gift, somebody to do certain things in certain ways or whatever. And like I said, He's gonna dwell a little bit more on this in Charlotte, Allah in the book later on about the different karmart. And indeed, when we read the couteau of
the ahaadeeth, we know that certain certain
people were given the keramat, as was mentioned in the Hadith, of Allah Islam, but also when you look at the Quran, you see that a lot anta talks about certain keramat does anybody can anybody think of any keramat? mentioned? lapuan?
little calf, yeah, we could say that. Jeff is one of the cutomer the last pantile allowed them to sleep for a long time, although not, you know, maybe in a in a certain way. Not the one. Yeah.
Sorry. To say the birth? Yes. So the birth of a Sally Sam could be considered the kurama as well, because it wasn't there as a it wasn't there to challenge
that the talking maybe more of a modern user. I think it could be a kurama because any day more than Chroma The only they are essentially the same. They're both gifts. But one is a challenge. The more it could be a could be a more user, but it also is a caramel. And that's why you see even talking in the cradle is not specific to a salary center, isn't it? We know in the Hadith, let me attack Helen feel Maddie Illa salata, there's a hadith that there are three who spoke in the cradle and the other two were not prophets. So the so the it's not specific for prophets. Yes. Was it?
Is that Korea? Maybe it was more of a
word. You said there was a challenge in it there. You mean when he didn't speak?
So it was it was more like a challenge. There was a challenge there to show the people.
Maryam salami, Oh.
Well, did she have What was it? What was her cut?
Yes. So it was she was being given different
different types. Sorry. Yes.
Laika and also yeah Maria manella kihavah Congresswoman en de la. So, those are examples
yes sir a cover as well as in terms of his knowledge that he was given,
was there kurama or was aspect of knowledge and he, we can say that both there and so on. So, there are examples I mentioned in the, in the, in the Quran of the Quran.
And finally, in this sorry, not Finally, but also carrying on with Sahil to study, he said that, and he, he almost like summarizes for us here, they have lost, and he said,
this is something maybe it's good, that person tries to
memorize this. And I think this is important for us that, you know, as we are learning here in Sharla, and sitting and studying that we try to as well
equip ourselves with these small snippets of information. So, you know, when you're sitting in a, in a gathering, somewhere, eating, you know, having a meal without, and somebody said, Oh, it was a class, you know, that you at least know, it is to be able to regurgitate the definition of a class, and not just say, Well, yeah, I know what it means, but you know, how to define it. So it's always good to have at least one or two definitions up your sleeve and to memorize those definitions, nothing wrong with them.
So he said, navorro, a KS, feet of Cyril airfloss, the intellectuals, they have looked at how best to give that tefera class philomela do hirahara and it's like the summary is this they didn't find better summary than this. What is the summary and takuna harakat who who was sukoon fishery he wialon Yeti de la la la vida, la umezu shade, Lana Walla, Walla Dunia adonia to one sentence, and takuna hierarchy to his motions was Shakuni his stillness. Okay. And according to Newton's law of thermodynamics, a body can either be stealth, or moving, so you can't be anything else. So his motion, whenever he's moving, or his stillness, in secret or in public, they're all for Allah tala.
Okay? And it is not mixed, or disturbed or polluted or purified by anything. Neither the desire neither the neffs nor anything related to a dunya
simple so basically everything that you're doing
whether you're moving on you're still secret, everything's for last pat down and not not
mixed with anything.
lastly, in this section of the class, he also mentions another word for another one of the righteous peoples called sillery a sap RT Rahim Allah and he also contributes to the
to the topic of airfloss. And he says,
and you have to understand this in the context where if you if you listen to it, and you find it, he said Latta, Amal Lena sushi, and while at rocklahoma, a while to open your home, she and well attack she fula. home she and
if you read it, just like that, and he has a forward transit, it's a saying, don't do anything for people.
And if losses, don't do anything for people, don't leave anything for them. Don't give them anything, and don't reveal to them anything. Now somebody might say this is a very mean way. Don't do anything for you. For me, I don't serve people don't give any any. And obviously it's not meaning that what he means is don't do lateral manliness, and don't do anything for the sake of people, which is what we mentioned before in a previous that. Don't let your cause of your action, the people so don't do lateral inertia. Don't do anything for the sake of people. And don't leave anything for their sake. So basically, if you're going to do something, do it for a long time. If
you're not going to do something, do it for a long time. We wrote about this in a previous lesson about not leaving anything for people and don't give them anything.
Meaning that again, within the same
contests that when you are doing something for them, you shouldn't be doing it for their sake and you should be doing it for the sake of the last panel. So if you're going to give them for their sake,
then you're gonna lose out on the reward that could be anticipated with a loss of habitat. While your time warner parama Allah Herbie, yeah, Myskina Team nycrr so they give the food or they feed others the food Allah hope be one of the tough seers of Allah hug them is as a hug Billa because for the sake of loving of Allah, they feed others the food in NaNoWriMo, comb, Luigi la so we are feeding you for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah unreadable, which is our nature, we don't want to extract we don't. So when you give, don't give anything to the people, for the people, because if you give it to the people seeking
their reward, then if they do reward you, then that is your Why's your payment, you know, they say thank you or they do something good in return, that will be your payment, you will not get anything from a loss. If you do it for a Lost Planet, Allah and Allah who will reward you and the people also will be grateful for you.
And he said, Well,
tech Shifu lahoma Cheyenne, again, within the same meaning is that you need to keep any, don't tell them, don't reveal to them your actions.
You don't need to tell them what you're doing and how good you you know how good of a Muslim you are and how great you are. Because by doing that, again,
you are potentially going to lose the reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because you are
you are you've allowed the neffs to get a share of this because you want them to say okay, well done, Mashallah, you're doing really good. So it's a very, very fine point to enter here.
So with that, this finishes the section on the last The next section is a soap which inshallah we'll talk about next week.
As I mentioned last time, Sharla we will stop around some of the LMR and the shoe which have been rated in this book and just dwell a little bit about them.
And today, I just want to talk mentioned about one of the great righteous people who was known as the Norn ella muscley.
Okay, the new one and Missouri
and he was someone who was basically
from muscle as you
know, from the name the name gives it away. But his his his actual
origins, if you like was that his father was from an norba, which was the is the south part of Egypt is more most like the area which meets current day, Sudan. I mean, in the past, they didn't really have Sudan, Sudan was, you know, there was muscle extended all the way down.
to that and even some say that the Sudan was actually more towards the,
the the east of Africa but anyway, not to worry about that. Too much. So he was one of the from his father was a Nubian.
And he was also known as a bill failed. And he was born in the time of Alamin soul
who was at mon Sol Abuja from Moscow.
He was a califia and it was a
Yeah, he was the one who, who built by that and he was the second
halifa the second abbacy arriva.
so, what kind of, what kind of century was that?
When did that bassins start to rule
hingedly we're talking about Yeah.
Second, second century, and more specifically 130 232 is when the, the abasi took power. He was a scholar, and he narrated from people like Malik, Malik and the layth and soufiane, ignorin and others. And he was someone who was
you know, he was somebody who used to have knowledge he used to speak he used to be eloquent
In his speeches and give, but he wasn't someone who probably was a
he wasn't someone who was very, he wasn't his his product, his commodity wasn't in Hadeeth. There wasn't like a big muhaddith. in that regards. He was more of somebody who used to speak to people advise them, give them more albums on
a tsunami mentioned that once they brought him from Egypt to Al mutawa kill who was another one of the abasi hola in the year 244. And he was
he would come and he would advise him with our kill and even cause him to cry.
And some of the things that are narrated
to him is that he was somebody who spoke a lot about understanding a lot surgical very much pours into this whole concept of understanding our line, knowing our line being aware of Allah
subhanahu Wata, and
on one occasion, people try to make, you know, accusation against him to try and you know, cause problems with him. They're saying that once they were passing by in the boat,
so somebody said to him, that these people are going to the governor to complain about you and to make to say something about you
in regards to your athlete and so on. So he said all law if they are lying, then let them drown.
And indeed, the boat capsized and they drowned. So they said, Why? What about the the captain of the ship here? I mean, the guy who was why would he said, Well, he also was part of the and he was carrying them taking them to their journey. And he said, it's better that they stand in front of Allah as drowned people rather than people who have witnessed falsely should show that as well.
But after that, he was really upset that he had made that die and he said by alarm, not going to make it hard against anybody again.
the same person that they try to make problem for is when he actually brought brought the known and he spoke to him and he learned from him, he was actually quite impressed by what he had said. And so therefore, he had good opinion
of the meanings that he has, he has said is
he said, whatever you whatever concept, you think of a law, then Allah is not like that, you know, whatever you try to imagine a lot of lives in Atlanta. And also the things that he said he said that list still far has many meanings of it is to be
regret what you have done. Secondly, to have the willpower and the firm resolve to leave. The third is to do what you have wasted of the obligation of a law. Fourthly, to return all the oppressions to people fiddly to get rid of all the flesh that has been has nurtured on something which is haraam. And lastly, you will feel the pain of the bar of obedience, like you might have felt any sweetness in the mouse ear that you have committed.
So he as we said he was born during the time of Ensenada. He died in the year 245. And so he lived approximately 90 years.
And he died in a place called the geezer. And they tried to take him back.
They took him back basically by ship and need to because the
bridges that were connecting, were so full of people going to attend his
challenge and that they had to transport him by ship, because it was just difficult to get over their bridges. So inshallah I'll also print this off for you and you can have a copy of that in the shop.
So what we're going to do as well from from next week, I'm hoping to just set up a small group on WhatsApp for this lesson, where we can share some further points about this discussion and keep the discussion going. in Charlotte Allah and I brought the files so handy. Allow next week, I can start to give you the the
performance. I have some some copies here for some people in Sharla. But I brought the files until next time, I can also distribute messages that come along here. Does anybody have any questions they'd like to ask
