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

So I wanted

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

to talk

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

when I was building

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

the airline in Armenia, the law firm will deliver on your political fallout.

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

Tada Ibrahim

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

Ibrahim.

00:01:13--> 00:01:15

Respect to listeners

00:01:17--> 00:01:20

as was announced,

00:01:22--> 00:01:24

we've gathered here today for the

00:01:25--> 00:01:33

study and commentary of a very famous Hadeeth related by a booth that'll be Friday, it'll be a

00:01:38--> 00:01:41

few weeks at Well, a few months ago, I

00:01:42--> 00:01:47

spoke on the famous companion of weather Friday it'll be Mr. Horn

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

in some detail,

00:01:51--> 00:02:01

and we learnt that he was a great scholar in his own right. In fact, he was considered to be an equal

00:02:03--> 00:02:25

to say than Abdullah him and we saw that over your lifetime in a scholarship, but he is not so well known as a scholar, because another characteristic of his personality was more dominant. And that was his and worldliness and his asterism and his

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

fearless proclamation of the truth.

00:02:31--> 00:02:40

He was very unworldly and he been very close and beloved companion have sort of lost in the limelight. Even some of them narrated a number of heady

00:02:41--> 00:03:20

and one of his more famous narrations is one which is recorded by a number of authors and their books. Among them the humbler Hitler had a record that his heavy in his this Hadeeth in his Muslim Imam mahadi not seen as too he but in his illegible Morford, Imam Timothy Murray would imagine in the sun, and many other authors this this isn't an exhaustive list, just an exemplary list. But the most famous scholar I've had the youth who collected the most complete version of this had etha without all the aligners Mr. Muslim, de la Healy, in his

00:03:21--> 00:03:41

this hadith is one of the greatest ahaadeeth of a sort of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that has come down to us. And many of the scholars throughout the centuries, took great delight in relating this head Eve and in recording this head Ethan box, even just for the purpose of Baraka,

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

because

00:03:45--> 00:03:58

there are a number of Hadeeth not that many, some of them are say approximately 100 headings, which are regarded as Odyssey headings in that the province of lilla. Heidi who was selling them

00:04:00--> 00:04:42

doesn't just relate the words of the head, Ethan explained himself. rather he attributes these words to last travel with Allah Himself. So we have the arm which is the primary source of Revelation. And these are the words of Allah. This is the Quran and the speech of Allah. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a carrier. he conveyed the very words of Allah has the origin in the Quran, and that's why the Quran holds a unique position. We are rewarded for its recitation, it's to be recited in Salah. In fact, we are rewarded for even reciting letters of the Quran, though we may not understand them.

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

The other form of revelation equally from Allah subhanho wa Taala is not an urn, but what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam relates himself the meaning is from Allah undoubtedly, since the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never spoke of his own interest.

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

As of last season the Quran in surah najem among the Quran in Hawaii in Hawaii Illa

00:05:06--> 00:05:07

Allah who said

00:05:09--> 00:05:32

that he the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not speak of desire connait it has not been a revelation, which has revealed and him the one of great minds and power gibreel alayhis salam taught him, so nothing that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke of, when he

00:05:33--> 00:05:37

taught and preached to his followers was of his own

00:05:39--> 00:06:17

desire, or they weren't merely his own thoughts. Rather, this was a reflection of the revelation of a lost crown hoard data, but the wording would be from a sort of law. So the law it was sort of them in between the Hadeeth of su La La salatu salam and the holy book, both of which are forms of Revelation, we have a set of heavy some of them are say as I said earlier, that number approximately 100 not all of them are as authentic as one another. They are in various grades of reliability, but these hundreds of Hadeeth they are known as Odyssey headings.

00:06:18--> 00:06:38

And the meaning is, that in these studies, although they are not like the arm, but in them the prophets of Allah hi they were some of them actually ascribes the words directly to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So rather than just speak, he says, Allah said or Allah says,

00:06:39--> 00:06:58

so there are a number of other si Hadees and out of these audyssey Hadith, this is probably one of the most famous ones, and not just one of the most famous but also one of the most prestigious and this is why the orlimar would delight in relating this headies

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

so let me relate that even then inshallah we'll begin the commentary of each of the individual sentences are we listening that silly mini me Muslim in law?

00:07:11--> 00:07:12

Oh, come on Casa de la, I think most of them female only about a quarter. That's the Arabic text of the Hadees and actually narrated it, as I said, with a chain of narration with an uninterrupted chain of narration from me, all the way from Eman Muslim Russian law, who says that Abdullah, Abdullah, Rama daddy me, related to us that mattawan meaning Mohammed, they must be narrated to us that so either abdulazeez narrated to us from A to Z, from Abu Idris

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

from Abu Dhabi, Allahu Allah, from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in that as part of that which he related from Allah, blessed and exalted. Is he that last panel without I said, Oh, my servants

00:10:01--> 00:10:04

I have forbidden injustice upon myself.

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

And I have made it prohibited amongst you.

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

Therefore, do not be unjust to one another.

00:10:15--> 00:10:19

All my servants, every one of you,

00:10:20--> 00:10:21

is misguided,

00:10:22--> 00:10:28

except one whom I guide, therefore seek guidance of me and I shall guide

00:10:29--> 00:10:59

all my servants, every one of you is hungry, except one whom I feed. Therefore c systems have me, and I shall feed all my servants, every one of you, is naked and unclothed, except one whom I clothe and shelter, therefore seek protection from me, or covering from me, and I shall cover you, all my servants, indeed, you sin, day and night.

00:11:01--> 00:11:12

And I forgive all sins, therefore, seek my forgiveness, and I shall forgive you, all my servants, you will never reach the stage

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

of harming me so that you can harm me.

00:11:18--> 00:11:23

And you will never be able to reach the stage of benefiting me, so that you can benefit to me

00:11:25--> 00:11:26

or my servants.

00:11:28--> 00:11:32

If the first and the last, and the men in the gym amongst you,

00:11:33--> 00:11:35

were all as pious,

00:11:37--> 00:11:39

as the most pious hearted man amongst you,

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

this would not increase anything in my kingdom.

00:11:45--> 00:11:52

All my servants, if the first and the last the men in the gym amongst you, were all as sinful

00:11:53--> 00:12:14

as the most sinful hearted one amongst you, this would not reduce anything from my kingdom, on my servants of the first and the last, the men in the gym, amongst you, were all to stand in one claim. And then each was to ask me, and then I was to give, inch, there wish.

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

This would not reduce

00:12:19--> 00:12:20

from what I have,

00:12:21--> 00:12:30

except to the degree of what a pin or a needle reduces when it's dipped into the ocean and extracted again,

00:12:32--> 00:12:33

all my servants,

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

these are but your deeds,

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

I enumerate them, and collect them for you, then I shall give you them, I shall give you their full Recompense. So whoever finds good, the lesson praise Allah. And whoever finds other than this, then let him blame no one but himself. This is the full heavy and as I said, the older man would delight in relating this heavy for a number of reasons. It contains many of the basic teachings and truths of Islam. And Imam Mohammed, Allahu Allahu relates of this hadith and recorded it and as Muslim

00:13:15--> 00:13:18

he would say,

00:13:19--> 00:13:30

late early, early shermie had Ethan Ashraf amin haven't had that for the people have shown that is no more prestigious and noble heavy than this.

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

And the reason is that

00:13:35--> 00:13:37

all of the narrator's

00:13:40--> 00:13:59

at least during the time of the month, I should have handled till then all of the narrators are from sham. They're all from Damascus. They're all demonstrating narrator's about the failure of the alarm. As I mentioned, when discussing his life, he lived in the marsh in Damascus for a time.

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

And that's where he related this heading. The one who relates from him in the son of the man was really the one who relates from him as a mom of the riesel kolani. And he's from Damascus and he wasn't just around, we have to understand about the narrator's of heavy that they weren't just laymen, who happened to relate heavy from one another. So we may just say casually, the narrator's are heavy.

00:14:30--> 00:14:45

But that was never the case, each of the narrator's of hobbies, even those who actually declared to be weak and unreliable. They were great scholars and judges and authors in their own way, almost in every stage.

00:14:46--> 00:14:54

Now here we have the failure of the alarm unrelated from the sort of loss of the law it was the one who relates from him as a regional kolani.

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

With regional Harlan was the judge and the greatest

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

scholar of Damascus. In fact, he used to teach and preach in the presence of the companions.

00:15:09--> 00:15:17

And I'll tell you a bit more about him in a moment. So we will hold on is from Damascus, the students who narrates from Idris Oh, hold on.

00:15:20--> 00:15:25

Happy New Year's Eve. He's from Damascus. And again, he was a great scholar in his own right.

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

The one who relates from A to Z

00:15:32--> 00:15:47

is certainly the more Abdelaziz a nine which we may never have heard of. But that will allow us to say that the position of imams either by Abdel Aziz in sharm was the equivalent of the position of Mr. Malik in Medina

00:15:49--> 00:15:52

and the one who relations for either Mark disease

00:15:56--> 00:15:57

Marwan

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

again, he was a scholar

00:16:01--> 00:16:44

and the one who relates from Marwan he, he was from the mosque as well Marwan was from the Masai Mara disease was from the mosquito magazine was from the image in this chain of the Muslim which are related. All of the narrator's was scholars in their own right. And they were all from Damascus, except for him and Muslims teacher, Mr. Muslims teacher in this narration was Imam Abdullah Abdullah Ramana. datamine was a famous author of Sona datamine, is actually the teacher of Eman Muslim. But that doesn't negate the fact that this is a Hadith, which belongs to the people of Sham because, as I said earlier, up till the fourth or fifth generation of narrators, after which there have been

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

spread far and wide,

00:16:47--> 00:17:30

and in my humble said, there is no heavy which is more noble and prestigious for the people I've shown than this heavy thought without the alarm. And in fact, it was so prestigious, we may not be able to recognize that. But let's take the example of amount of almost the amount of weasel colon, the one who narrates his hobbies from the factory of the alarm, who was in terms of his learning and scholarship. He was born in the eighth year of hedger, but he never got to see the province of the law. It was and he was a child. So he's one of the leading Fabien one of the leading students of this harbor. He was actually born in the eighth year of hedger. Now, he grew up amongst the Sahaba,

00:17:30--> 00:17:47

learning from them. And during his own lifetime, he was so highly regarded in terms of a scholarship and piety. As far as scholarship was concerned, he once was teaching, and he was speaking about the expedition's of a sort of loss of love,

00:17:48--> 00:17:51

and his journeys and travels. So

00:17:52--> 00:18:08

once he had completed his discourse on that particular occasion, among from the end of the gathering, he spoke up and, and he said, Were you present on any of these occasions with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? So when he saw how long he said, No.

00:18:10--> 00:18:21

So that man said, Well, let me tell you, I was present with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and yet, you are able to preserve the details of these expedition and even ag

00:18:22--> 00:19:01

even though you weren't present. And the other man would say that after the amount of time the famous companion and hobby of Damascus, the greatest scholar, even amongst them, even in the presence of the companions, was the amount of regional Hola. And in terms of piety, in the masjid of Damascus, it's related that he would be seated, there would be groups of people, including groups of Sahaba, the Allah one who would be reciting the Quran in groups, when they would come to a verse of such that they would all pause, including this habit, and they would summon the result.

00:19:02--> 00:19:26

Then they would request him to recite the verse of frustration and such there, and then they would all prostrate. That's in terms of piety, this How about all the Allah would call upon him to recite the verse of servitude, and then they were prostrate. So, he was highly regarded, and yet this thing about injury, so hold on, to law, he had a, he regarded this body

00:19:28--> 00:20:00

with such awe and reverence, that whenever he would relate this heavy, he would do so kneeling forward, always out of total respect. And in total submission, humility, he would relate this entire heavy, kneeling. So this is why I said this heavy that Allah would delight in relating it, and I mentioned about the demo scene, narrator's meaning and rates from Damascus, your mom know your law, he was a famous scholar of the sickness of the seventh century.

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

He died in 676 hedgy. So he's a scholar of the seventh century, one can imagine the number of narrators that would be found between him and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And yet in this example of God, your mom, no, we have to learn how they relate to the same Hadees from his teachers, and he himself was a resident of Damascus. So you might know who the lovely relators had Ethan is capable of God, from himself all the way to the sort of laughs of the law while he was some of them. And then he mentioned that the unique thing about this narration, which I have related, without the alarm, is that every single narrator all the way from my teachers, to the alarm, is a

00:20:45--> 00:20:48

scholar of Damascus. So this is why they will

00:20:50--> 00:20:56

delight in relating this hadith and they would consider this hadith to be the heavy use of the people of Sham.

00:20:57--> 00:21:05

In any case, I've related the main hobbies. Now let's look at the individual wording, a lot of laughs a lot of it says

00:21:06--> 00:21:08

that Allah subhanho wa Taala, say,

00:21:10--> 00:21:13

yo Eva, or myself,

00:21:14--> 00:21:17

in the heroine lumada NFC, which out to have a knock

00:21:19--> 00:21:27

on my servants, I have forbidden volume upon myself, and I have forbidden that amongst you.

00:21:28--> 00:21:31

Therefore do not be unjust to one another.

00:21:32--> 00:21:36

One of the phrases that occurs throughout this heavy is yarn.

00:21:40--> 00:21:48

And this one phrase, in itself speaks volumes. It tells us of a number of things all at once.

00:21:50--> 00:21:54

That we belong to Allah, He owns us.

00:21:55--> 00:21:58

We are his creation, we belong to them.

00:21:59--> 00:22:01

He is our Lord our master.

00:22:02--> 00:22:04

He can do with us as he wishes,

00:22:06--> 00:22:07

that he possesses us.

00:22:08--> 00:22:13

And we are His servants as slaves. We serve.

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

Worship in Arabic is known as a bar. And a bar that means service originally doesn't mean worship.

00:22:23--> 00:22:39

So we don't just serve Allah. When standing before him in ritual prayer. We serve him for every moment of our existence. Our whole being is one of servitude. We belong to him. He possesses us, we are.

00:22:40--> 00:22:43

We are his slaves. We are his bombs.

00:22:45--> 00:22:46

Lawrence's

00:22:48--> 00:23:13

he has total power over us, and we are helpless before him. We are dependent on him reliance on him, we are in need of him for everything. And that's what the heavy speed stuff for sustenance, for shelter for protection for concealment of our fault some of our reality, for life, for guidance

00:23:15--> 00:23:16

for the forgiveness of our sins.

00:23:18--> 00:23:25

But the word servant and slave and bondsman in relation to the creation

00:23:26--> 00:23:32

of Allah is not just one of ownership and possession and control.

00:23:33--> 00:23:40

It's also one of belonging. It's one of a connection of a relationship. And more than that,

00:23:41--> 00:23:45

it's one of compassion, love,

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

affection.

00:23:49--> 00:23:53

For last panel with Allah uses this phrase,

00:23:54--> 00:24:41

in the Quran as well to encompass all of these meanings. At one of the same time, we are reminded of our duty to Allah, our belonging to Allah, of our need of Allah, our own helplessness. And at the same time, we are reminded about connection to Allah, that will belong to Him. And we have a relationship with him. And he also reminds us that one of the same time have a lot of love and compassion. And when he uses this phrase in the program, it's used in a very balanced way. At times, it's used to remind us of a loss, forgiveness as well as his power of punishment. So in sort of the last panel with Toronto sees a bit about the analog of Ford or Rahim, what are the what are the

00:24:41--> 00:24:48

alene that inform my servants? That I am the most forgiving the most mess?

00:24:49--> 00:24:50

I'm saying

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

that my punishment is a painful punishment. And the reason for this is that we have to maintain a balance

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

relationship with Allah, one of trust and reliance, as well as fear and all respect and reverence. We hope for Allah's mercy and forgiveness, but at the same time we must fear his punishment if there is any imbalance in this

00:25:18--> 00:25:34

and normally there is we become complacent. Islam forbids both one. Islam forbids despair, one can not feel lost so much that will lose his despair of last mercy and forgiveness. despair is hard. And at the same time, complacency is

00:25:36--> 00:25:44

when we become complacent, we feel that a lot we tend to focus just on muster and reprimand, compassion, forgiveness a mess.

00:25:46--> 00:25:47

Rather,

00:25:48--> 00:26:22

we have to adopt a balanced approach in about our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that verse explains it all a bit about the anatomy of a food or Haman for my servants, but I am the most forgiving, the Most Merciful and inform them that my punishment is the most painful punishment. However, in other verses, or we can feel incense in the words Yeah, a buddy of mine servants his love and compassion, last round of without assays, but yeah, by the end of the unit sort of for Allah and forcing him to talk not only

00:26:23--> 00:26:43

in the law here for them all the Jamia in the whole world before him and sort of desired he says, say, oh my servants, meaning he tells the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam inform my servants, so say, My servants, those who have transgressed against themselves, do not despair of the mercy of

00:26:44--> 00:26:47

Verily Allah forgives all sins.

00:26:48--> 00:27:01

Verily his most forgiving, Most Merciful, in another verse also to Bukhara, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What is our sir look, everybody, Annie, and when my when my servants asked you about me?

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

For me,

00:27:04--> 00:27:06

then they should know that I am closer to him.

00:27:08--> 00:27:59

When my servants asked you about me, for anybody, well, gee, without that either an alias the G ball Li What do you mean all the land on your showroom? When my servants asked you about me? Then very I'm close. I answer the prayer and the call of one who calls out to me, when he calls out to me. Therefore, let them respond to my call. And let them believe in me in the hope that they may find righteousness and guidance and in sort of reflection, at the time of death, and in the Hereafter, we will be told those who are pious, those who will be forgiven by those who deserve it, they will be told Yeah, you have to have some water in your jewelry in Arabic cara de Maria for Holi theory body

00:27:59--> 00:27:59

with holy jell

00:28:01--> 00:28:06

o soul that is content or content, soul, or tranquil soul,

00:28:07--> 00:28:15

returned to your Lord, pleased with Allah and pleased with meaning Allah is pleased with him content with you.

00:28:18--> 00:28:25

Enter into my gardens, enter amongst my servants and enter them into my gardens. So again,

00:28:26--> 00:28:59

law says enter amongst my servants. So these phrases of my servant especially in these verses, which have related speak of a very close and special relationship between the creation and the last crown award, and though it may sound strange to us, the title of add of servant is one of the greatest titles of honor and dignity that Allah confers upon anyone in his creation. It really is. That's the relationship between Allah and His creation. Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:29:02--> 00:29:03

He is mighty and majestic.

00:29:05--> 00:29:10

And he wants the creation to be dependent on him and they want he wants them to know that they are dependent on him.

00:29:12--> 00:29:22

And this is why we're sort of lost in the love it has taught us that when we pray to Allah and supplicate to him, we should praise Allah before we pray to

00:29:25--> 00:29:26

Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah

00:29:28--> 00:29:43

forgives much. But one one thing which leads to destruction is pride and arrogance. Because in pride and arrogance, one challenge is Allah in his pride and majesty. In fact, one of the names of Allah is

00:29:44--> 00:29:56

the proud Allah forbids anyone to be proud and arrogant, or boastful, but Allah is boastful of his favours and Allah is proud, but he deserves to be such.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

That's His Majesty. So Allah

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

panel Diana's relationship with his creation is such that the more they humble themselves before him, the more they express their dependency on him. The more Allah loves them, the more last panel data elevates them. You may be counter intuitive, but the more we lower ourselves before Allah, the more Allah elevates us in his own sight.

00:30:23--> 00:30:41

So, this is why amongst the prophets, Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to many of the prophets or servants, in fact, all of them, and even at the best of times, but some of the last Allahu alayhi wa sallam, as Muslims believe he was the most beloved of all the prophets of Allah, the greatest of creation.

00:30:42--> 00:30:59

Yet a lot only mentions in by name a few times, only when the context demands it otherwise is normally addressed as prophets and messenger. On many occasions, Allah refers to him simply a servant. And even in the best of times

00:31:01--> 00:31:18

when a lot speaks of him receiving the revelation, the bottle kindliness Dylan for Kannada, AB de la comunidad amin and Lila Blessed is he who reveal the criterion, a distinction I either call upon His servants in sort of

00:31:20--> 00:31:45

realizing that the answer Allah Abdullah kita, Allah who Eva All Praise be to that Allah revealed the Book to His servant, when the last panel with Donna invited the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam in Mirage, and that was one of his greatest miracles that Allah bestowed upon him. On that occasion when he went to the heavens and beyond, when no one not even the angels could go

00:31:47--> 00:31:48

of that journey

00:31:49--> 00:32:13

of that miraculous journey. Allah subhanho wa Taala has on so many favors were conferred upon him. So many titles were given to him. So many secrets were revealed to him. Even on that occasion, a lot chooses not to describe him as prophets or messenger or even by his name, Allah says, Some common law the SRB Abtahi lay the minimum Mr. Elon Musk develops and Barak,

00:32:14--> 00:32:35

glorify be Allah, who carried his servants by night from mystery the locks are too from an image of inherent admission to the point I wish to make is, Allah even refers to his prophet alayhi wa salam, as a bard, and as a servant and as a slave. And for them, that was a title of great honor. So if,

00:32:37--> 00:32:37

in fact,

00:32:40--> 00:32:44

what better example could there be an ISA nobody in Mali, who

00:32:45--> 00:32:46

is the son of Maria,

00:32:48--> 00:33:17

billions across the globe, now and throughout history, have hailed the Prophet Isa, the son of Miriam and he was Salam. Not just as a pious man, not just as a prophet, not just as God's servant, not just as a holy man, but even beyond. They've elevated him to God Himself to one of the Holy Trinity, to the being the son of God.

00:33:18--> 00:33:19

And they worshiped

00:33:21--> 00:33:22

and they continue to fish.

00:33:24--> 00:33:26

A lot we even asked him on the day of reckoning,

00:33:27--> 00:33:30

as I mentioned, towards the end of salt and Mather,

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

with our love, he said in the medium

00:33:34--> 00:33:37

that he's only want me to hate him Indonesia.

00:33:38--> 00:33:57

And remember when Allah will say, or Isa, son of meridian? Did you tell the people to take you and your mother, as God that take me and my mother as Gods besides Allah, undoubtedly the Prophet Isa and he slams protesters innocence. So even the Prophet Isa the son of million, masala

00:33:59--> 00:34:24

he was given a rank that even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has never been given, which is of being worshiped, of being considered one of the trinity of being God incarnates of being God Himself, even someone who is regarded as God Himself, what does Allah say of him in the Quran? lanius then given the mercy for any akuna Abdullah,

00:34:27--> 00:34:28

that

00:34:29--> 00:34:31

mercy, the Messiah,

00:34:36--> 00:34:46

even the Messiah will not sustain and turn up his nose from being the servant of Allah, and nor will the closest angels.

00:34:48--> 00:34:56

And there's a very beautiful story about this, someone who was a Christian and was looking into Islam. He

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

accepted everything.

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

But the one thing holding him back from actually embracing was the following thoughts which he expressed, that

00:35:11--> 00:35:24

I accept and believe everything that I've read so far about Islam and, um, I wish to embrace. But he was a practicing Christian. He said, the one thing which prevents me from doing so is that all my life

00:35:26--> 00:35:33

I have hailed Jesus, as the Son of God as God and as one of the Holy Trinity.

00:35:34--> 00:35:55

And now, my heart and my mind and my very being, just cannot accept the thought of drastically and suddenly and dramatically reducing him from God, to a simple servant, one of God's creation. I just cannot do it. This is what's holding me back.

00:35:57--> 00:36:13

And then he said, he continued to read the Koran. And he came across this verse leus them give them a secret in your corner, Abdullah, that the Messiah himself will not disdain and turn up his nose in being a servant. So when I read that verse,

00:36:15--> 00:36:22

all my dad's just disappeared immediately. And I felt that if Jesus Himself

00:36:24--> 00:37:09

will not disdained being a servant of Allah, then who am I, to hold back? And in fact that was the only block which he overcame by reading the simple verse. So the greatest one of the greatest titles that Allah bestows upon His messengers, and chosen Prophet, prophets is one of being an advocate, a servant, he bestowed that title on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Matt arch and on many other occasions, So who are we then not to consider ourselves as servants or as a bird and the last panel with Allah begins this Hadees with that one phrase, which encompasses so much a lot easier, a birdie, oh my sir.

00:37:11--> 00:37:13

In the Toronto zoo, Moran FC, which

00:37:16--> 00:37:22

I have made. In just I have made them haram forbidden upon myself. What's

00:37:24--> 00:37:41

its common word which we are familiar with. But in common parlance, view is normally referred to as been tyranny, oppression, repression, in justice, massacre, genocide, the word boom conjures up very strong images

00:37:42--> 00:37:44

of oppression and tyranny,

00:37:46--> 00:37:59

which are all true. These are at the extreme end of volume. And unfortunately, in non in common language, the word volume has become restricted to these extreme meanings,

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

which is an error on our part.

00:38:04--> 00:38:15

Because that leads us again to complacency thinking that Vu is always practiced by others not says. So it's only tyrannical rulers or madmen

00:38:17--> 00:38:23

or malicious individuals who are guilty of them on a mass scale.

00:38:24--> 00:38:47

However, since we are not in a position of power, or in, or immense so extreme influence, we are incapable of tyranny. We are incapable of oppression, we are incapable of votes. But the truth is, volume is not restricted to these means. These are the extreme manifestations of volume in Arabic. Volume simply means what if you're

00:38:48--> 00:39:04

placing something in an undeserved place? volume in Arabic originally simply means transgressing the bounds going beyond the limit, no matter how minor it may be them in Arabic simply means wrongdoing.

00:39:07--> 00:39:40

So we don't have to be tyrannical rulers. We don't have to be in positions of great power and influence to be capable of rather, every one of us in our lowly cells is not just capable is actually guilty of them. And that's exactly what the Sahaba of the law recognized. Imam Bukhari and Muslim law related Hadees from Abdullah Massaro there'll be a lot and who says that when the verse of pseudocolor nam was revealed, in which Allah says alladhina amanu

00:39:43--> 00:39:52

la ilaha illallah wa mata doon, that those who have believed and who have not polluted that faith with volume

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

these are the ones for whom they security and these are

00:40:00--> 00:40:13

The ones who are rightly guided. So I'm delighted was rude. There'll be a lot more MCs when this verse was revealed this ball down heavily on the believers, because their understanding of them was the correct one, which is any wrongdoing.

00:40:14--> 00:40:35

And they said to themselves, are you an ally of the Manasa, who amongst us, does not wrung himself and the companions collectively we're concerned that this means that one has to be only of the purest of faith in order to be secure and safe and guided, and that they cannot pollute their faith with any wrongdoing.

00:40:37--> 00:41:10

Allah says those who have believed and who have not contaminated their faith with any wrongdoing, they are the ones for whom their security and who are rightly guided. So the companion said, We this bogged down heavily honors and this was difficult for us, for who amongst us does not wrong himself. So we went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we spoke to him of this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reassured them by saying, It's not what you think. The Zoom being referred to here is the zoom.

00:41:11--> 00:41:17

Have you not read the verse where the pious serve until Abdullah sila look man

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

was advising his son. And he said what your father look man and liberty he is from the Quran. With our look man liberty, he was evil. Yeah Bhumi Allah to Shrek Bella una v. And remember when he was advising and counseling his son and he said to him, oh my son or my child, do not ascribe partners until Allah verily should

00:41:43--> 00:41:51

policies, ascribing partners to Allah is the vulnerable Navin a great wrongdoing, a great injustice.

00:41:52--> 00:42:18

So this How about the Allahu anhu instead of them as it should be understood in its original meaning, although the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam reassured them by correcting them, and saying in this particular context, it doesn't refer to any wrongdoing. It refers to a great wrongdoing of ship. So the truth is, loot is like a spectrum. At the extreme end, you have tyranny and oppression,

00:42:20--> 00:42:21

murder and genocide.

00:42:23--> 00:42:39

And in that spectrum is also [???]. where a person described partners and to Allah, that is a great wrong committed to last panel. But also part of them is any wrongdoing whatsoever.

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

Even the slightest wrongdoing is

00:42:44--> 00:42:47

if someone owes you if you owe someone bumpin

00:42:49--> 00:42:51

and you pay them 99 pence

00:42:53--> 00:42:53

consciously,

00:42:56--> 00:42:57

knowingly

00:42:59--> 00:43:24

and willfully and intentionally you withhold one penny from you may be meek and trivial in our side, but you have deprived someone willingly and knowingly of one pound. Or sorry, one penny you have violated their rights you have deprived them of their right on the Day of Judgment, you will be questioned about that one single penny

00:43:25--> 00:43:26

you will

00:43:27--> 00:43:57

and that's why you know heavy for sort of laughs alarm I'll even send them says this is a general meaning of the Hadeeth the whoever has a mother lemma, whoever has a right outstanding that he has failed to fulfill the Nets him seek forgiveness and let him seek permissibility and let him make that wrongdoing Hello for himself whilst he can when he can i in this dunya before a day comes in which there shall be no friendship or trade.

00:43:58--> 00:44:03

But on that day, Allah will exact that price and it will be meaningful.

00:44:05--> 00:44:11

So though is any wrongdoing whatsoever, even a few pennies even a penny?

00:44:12--> 00:44:17

Allah subhanho wa Taala data does not tolerate injustice in any way.

00:44:19--> 00:44:20

And

00:44:21--> 00:44:59

therefore That's the meaning of them. It doesn't just mean tyranny and oppression, it means the justice in any form any wrongdoing, any injustice. And the last panel who says of himself, I have made them in justice, forbidden upon myself. Now the meaning of something forbidden to Allah, there's no power greater than Allah. So he is not to be questioned. So what's the meaning of I have made it forbidden simply, Allah does not a lot is not unjust in the least. And that's mentioned throughout the program will mount alarm in the lobby, and I'm not one to be unjust to the servants in the least.

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

In the law Hello.

00:45:03--> 00:45:04

Miss Carla in the law is

00:45:06--> 00:45:12

very Allah is not unjust to the measure of an atom a particle.

00:45:15--> 00:45:26

masala Muhammad Allah will be over the moon. Allah was not unjust to them even when He punished them for their wrongdoings rather they wronged themselves.

00:45:29--> 00:45:47

Allah subhanho wa Taala is not ingesting the least amount of alarmingly levied on the love of God the human labor law does not seek or desire, any injustice for the servants or the love of God, the little multilayered, I mean, a lot does not desire any injustice for the world's.

00:45:49--> 00:45:57

Allah is not unjust in the least there are so many verses throughout the Quran, which speak of this law is not unjust in any way.

00:45:59--> 00:46:10

And therefore, last panel data says I have made in justice Harmon forbidden upon myself, you too, and I have made it her arm between you fill out the volume or therefore do not be unjust to

00:46:13--> 00:46:20

the universe rests on balance. The universe rests on equilibrium

00:46:21--> 00:46:23

and balance.

00:46:24--> 00:47:01

If there is any disturbance or disruption to that balance, the heavens and the earth will perish. That is order in the universe, and to maintain that order, even on Earth. Allah subhanho wa Taala has sent prophets and who has revealed scriptures to ensure that the prophets and their followers and the creation as a whole uphol this balance, wherever there is any disturbance or disruption to this balance, that is chaos, that is anarchy. That is mayhem. That is Carnage that is great suffering.

00:47:02--> 00:47:25

And therefore last panel with Allah has made justice an obligation upon all of us in every single thing. Again, we restrict the meaning of justice, just as we restrict the meaning of them in justice. We think justice, and injustice are concepts confined to the mighty and powerful rulers, judges,

00:47:26--> 00:47:27

arbitrators.

00:47:29--> 00:47:35

But that's not true. Every one of us Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, we'll look at Morocco. Look

00:47:36--> 00:47:41

at every one of you is a shepherd, and each one of you will be questioned about his flock.

00:47:42--> 00:47:46

The father of the family, the mother of the family,

00:47:47--> 00:47:52

and employer about his employees, a ruler over his or her subjects.

00:47:54--> 00:47:56

Teacher about his or her students,

00:47:57--> 00:48:15

any single person that we are responsible for we are their shepherd, and we will be questioned about our flock on the Day of Judgment, and in justice and injustice, are not concepts restricted to the mighty and powerful. Rather, they are applicable in our everyday life.

00:48:18--> 00:48:34

Allah subhanho wa Taala has said boom is her alma pumpers. And Vu means a violation of anyone's rights in the least, whether it's about a penny, a pound, or a pound of flesh, that is haram.

00:48:35--> 00:48:57

And the Hardys speak of them in such a way that we should regard another person's wealth, life and property and honor and dignity as being sacred. That's the original meaning of haram haram means forbidden because it's sacred, unless you them Haram is a sacred sanctuary.

00:48:59--> 00:49:17

And speaking of sanctity, we regard Makkah to be sacred. we regard the garba to be sacred, we regardless delaford, Mina and arafat to be sacred, these are the stations of Hajj pilgrimage Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his final farewell pilgrimage.

00:49:19--> 00:49:27

One of the teachings which he left the whole world was or people know

00:49:29--> 00:49:33

that your lives and your wealth

00:49:35--> 00:49:43

are sacred, just as the sanctity of this month of the state of this place.

00:49:44--> 00:49:56

So just as you regard Makka Mina was terrifying arafat to be sacred. You should regard each other's property to be sacred, each other's blood to be sacred.

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

And in fact, in a very beautiful have ether later, bye

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

Delighted to be Allahumma and recorded by even a manager in the sun and I'm delighted no matter the alarm, Nkrumah says, I saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam performing the walk around the gap.

00:50:15--> 00:50:17

And he said, Man,

00:50:18--> 00:50:19

what to do?

00:50:21--> 00:50:22

Ma Ma Ma, Ma.

00:50:25--> 00:50:25

Ma

00:50:27--> 00:50:28

ma ma ma ma Ke

00:50:30--> 00:50:32

Ke when Levine MBA.

00:50:35--> 00:50:42

Many of them are in the law, he put them in Maliki with me. He loves a

00:50:43--> 00:51:01

prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I'm the light of the alarm, I realized that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was performing tawaf around the Kaaba and addressing the garba. He said, Oh, GABA, how sweet are you? And how sweet is your fragrance?

00:51:02--> 00:51:17

How great are you? And how great is your sanctity? By that Allah in whose hands rests the soul of Mohammed, the sanctity of a believer, is of even a greater sanctity by Allah then you have

00:51:19--> 00:51:25

the sanctity of his wealth, the sanctity of his blood,

00:51:26--> 00:51:31

and that we do not think of him anything but good.

00:51:32--> 00:51:45

That means there are three things which are sacred of a Muslim, as mentioned in this Headey his wealth, his blood and his honor and dignity, and this is mentioned even further in these later by Muslim

00:51:47--> 00:51:53

parts of along the Hadees from Abu huraira de la one in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:51:54--> 00:51:55

he has been written many

00:51:57--> 00:52:09

Muslim, it is sufficient for a person to be evil, that he holds his fellow Muslim in contempt. Then he says, Muslim and non Muslim haraam

00:52:12--> 00:52:20

every Muslim, his wealth, his blood and his dignity are sacred and haram upon another Muslim.

00:52:22--> 00:52:28

So, this is where volume comes in. The room isn't just about tyranny and oppression.

00:52:29--> 00:52:34

Justice is even about what we think of another purse.

00:52:37--> 00:52:50

We may not deprive them of their wealth, we may not, we may not harm them and hurt them physically. But if we do not think justly of them, even in our own hearts and minds,

00:52:51--> 00:52:53

we have committed a wrong and an injustice towards

00:52:55--> 00:53:04

as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, A sanctity even greater than the sanctity of the carrabba is that we do not think of another Muslim except good.

00:53:06--> 00:53:11

And his blood, his wealth and his dignity are all her arms sacred.

00:53:12--> 00:53:23

So, Allah subhanho wa Diana says I have made and just as her arm upon myself, I've made it haram upon you, to not be unjust, we cannot be unjust even to our enemies.

00:53:26--> 00:53:35

A laws religion is balanced. The arm establishes justice, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to establish justice.

00:53:37--> 00:53:47

In the Quran, there are many verses which speak of justice. Just one verse. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you have levina amaku

00:53:48--> 00:53:49

a wamena de la Shahada.

00:53:52--> 00:53:54

What are your drymen the commissioner and amin Allah Allah,

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

Allah.

00:53:58--> 00:54:03

Allah, Allah masamune Allah says, unbelievers

00:54:05--> 00:54:07

be upright for the sake of Allah.

00:54:09--> 00:54:32

upholders and witnesses upholders of justice, witnesses for the sake of Allah. And do not let your enmity or a dislike of a people incite you to being unjust. Be just that is closer to God consciousness and fear Allah Verily, Allah is well aware of what you are.

00:54:33--> 00:54:49

In fact in Salta matter a lot. This is the vessel sort of May the another vessel sort of made that last panel with Anna wanza companions. Yeah, you're Latina Amanullah Lucia Illa, with a shadow on her arm, one of the heavier what an honor it will mean elevated her arm.

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

And then the verse continues. Well, I remember

00:54:56--> 00:54:57

shenana bombing and so do

00:54:59--> 00:54:59

that.

00:55:01--> 00:55:07

This speaks of the believers considering sacred

00:55:09--> 00:55:12

the house of Allah, the symbols of a large religion,

00:55:14--> 00:55:33

the sacred month and other things associated with their pilgrimage than last panel data they Trump says, and do not let your dislike of a people because they have prevented you from emotional harm, incite you to committing transgression.

00:55:36--> 00:55:58

Now, what's the background to this verse, simply in the 16th of hedger, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam intended to go for Umrah from Medina. This was his first visit to Makkah, or even in the direction of Mecca and its vicinity. After he had left six years earlier. He went peacefully, only with the intention of pilgrimage the lesser pilgrimage

00:55:59--> 00:56:01

with approximately 1400 companions.

00:56:03--> 00:56:07

They were prevented from entering Mecca, they sought permission but the brace refused permission.

00:56:09--> 00:56:38

The Muslims were incensed because this was unprecedented parts of the Arab custom was that they regarded and must have the courage to be sacred. They regarded the months of pilgrimage to be sacred, and that sanctity meant that they would put aside their feuds and their battles. So even though they were in a state of war with another tribe, if that tribe visits in mechanics facility,

00:56:39--> 00:56:41

there will be a hands off policy.

00:56:42--> 00:57:01

There was protocol, there was a recognition of the science see of the sacred months and the sanctity of a machine and her arm and mechanics facility. So it was unprecedented for the first time the Arabs specifically for sort of laughs on the law it was seldom they barred him from entering the city. And

00:57:03--> 00:57:18

it was great who are this How about all the a lot more besides themselves with anger, there were incense and what had happened is that whilst he was still kept in touch with a via angry incense in a retaliatory mood,

00:57:20--> 00:57:25

other pagan tribes and pilgrims were making their way too much at the same time,

00:57:27--> 00:57:29

clad in their home.

00:57:30--> 00:57:50

So some of the Muslims momentarily in their anger and desire for retaliation thought that why is it that we with the Messenger of Allah have been prevented from admission to the Haram and yet pagans from other parts of Arabia are given free access to Makkah, whilst the prophets of Allah is barred from the city.

00:57:51--> 00:57:54

We should prevent them and we should attack them.

00:57:55--> 00:58:04

We should prevent the others from reaching out as well. A lot actually reveal this verse warning them, the old companions of followers are believers.

00:58:05--> 00:58:15

Do not let the fact that the brush prevented you from emotional harm, incite you to committing injustice and transgressing against anyone else.

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

Rather, consider their sacred states, their animals, sacrificial animals, their Garland's and their pilgrimage to them to Mecca to be sacred in its own right. Do not transgress even against your enemies.

00:58:37--> 00:59:01

That's the concept of justice. So there's a great obligation on us to establish justice in our everyday life. And there's a very beautiful heading about gang related by Imam Bukhari and Muslim Ummah loves the law. It says, at the light of the alarm alive I relate to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, as a Muslim or Muslim

00:59:04--> 00:59:09

woman can be hatched or he can have love of a woman for a

00:59:11--> 00:59:18

woman for Jan Muslim in Cordoba for de la hora guberman karate Aman, Aman cetera Muslim Central de la

00:59:19--> 00:59:22

la silla love it will send them says whoever

00:59:24--> 00:59:38

a Muslim is the brother of a Muslim. He is not unjust to him. Now I have a demo. He is not just him when I use limo, nor does he surrender, nor does he Hand him over. What does that mean the meaning of surrender and handing over

00:59:42--> 00:59:46

the law Holly who seldom says the believer is the brother of a belief.

00:59:48--> 00:59:53

It's not sufficient that he doesn't oppress him himself. It's not

00:59:54--> 00:59:58

sufficient that he does not commit injustice to him.

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

Part of his duty towards his brother is also that he protects him and saves him from injustice. And that he does not abandon him the meaning of what I used to nibble Hand him over or surrender him. He doesn't abandon.

01:00:16--> 01:00:26

rather he Ward's off evil from him, he protects him from injustice. And therefore we shouldn't have the approach that as long as I'm not doing anything wrong,

01:00:28--> 01:00:39

I'll keep myself to myself. A prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, a Muslim is a brother of a Muslim, he doesn't he is not unjust to him, nor does he abandoned.

01:00:40--> 01:00:52

Then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, and whoever is preoccupied in fulfilling a need of his brother, Allah remains preoccupied and fulfilling his and whoever relieves

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

a Muslim have a single suffering, Allah will relieve him of sufferings on the Day of Judgment.

01:01:03--> 01:01:12

And whoever conceals the fault of the Muslim, Allah will conceal his fault on the Day of Judgment. And he speaks about this as well.

01:01:13--> 01:01:40

About our dependence on the last panel of data to conceal our faults, we can't live alone, we have a duty towards each other, we have a duty to support each other, not to abandon one another, to be there for one another, to help them aid and assist one another. Not to be selfish, but to be more selfless, and to be more concerned to have sympathy and compassion for others.

01:01:42--> 01:02:05

We expect all of this for ourselves, yet we are not willing to give any of it to us. And there's very beautiful Hadith laid by Buddha Hassan, in which I'll just give the gist. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, There is no servant who abandons his brother, when his brother is most in need of him, except that Allah will abandon him when he is most needed.

01:02:07--> 01:02:08

As part of it.

01:02:11--> 01:02:39

It's the way it's quite longer, that there is no place in which the saints the dignity of a Muslim has been violated, and his honor is being rubbed off him and someone else doesn't assist him except that Allah will abandon him when he is most need of assistance. So, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a believer is a brother of a believer. He does not oppress him, he is not unjust to him, but he does not even abandon him or surrender him in any way.

01:02:40--> 01:03:10

And if we are guilty of them, or sort of lessen the love it sallallahu Sallam says again later I am to live no matter the Allah ohama Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in a vulnerable American yelman in justice will be darknesses on the Day of Resurrection. There's a lot to be said about this, but those who are just in every way, even in their thoughts, what's their reward, but sort of La Silla love it Muslim relates essays and Hadith later, but Abdullah Namur, but the Allahumma

01:03:12--> 01:03:17

recorded by Muslim and his he Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Those who are just

01:03:19--> 01:03:26

they will be on pulpits of new and light on the Day of Resurrection by Allah subhanho wa Taala.

01:03:28--> 01:03:31

To the rights of Allah, the compassionate

01:03:32--> 01:03:34

and both his hands are right.

01:03:37--> 01:03:37

Allah venia

01:03:39--> 01:03:52

Li Mo mahalo, those who are just in their judgment, and in their families, and their responsibilities. We are all responsible in some way to be just means to be rewarded

01:03:53--> 01:04:12

by being placed on a pulpits of light on the Day of Judgment by Allah subhanho wa Tada. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in this had these related by Allah Himself, that's all my servants I have made them haram upon myself and have made in justice haram upon you. Therefore do not be unjust to one another.

01:04:14--> 01:04:16

That last panel with Allah says,

01:04:17--> 01:04:18

Yeah, everybody

01:04:20--> 01:04:22

looking down on them and how they to who

01:04:23--> 01:04:23

they

01:04:24--> 01:04:36

are my servants, every one of you is misguided, except one who I guide therefore see gardens of me and I shall guide you. And I'll end with this as we are approaching the end of our time.

01:04:39--> 01:04:43

Indeed, every one of us is in need of a laws guidance.

01:04:46--> 01:04:48

We are only guided by a law

01:04:51--> 01:04:52

and the law guides from here will

01:04:57--> 01:05:00

even faith and

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

guidance on mysterious miracles in themselves. There are those who believe.

01:05:07--> 01:05:14

And it's surprising how they believe. And there are those who are expected to believe and yet they do not believe at all.

01:05:16--> 01:05:33

There were those who met sex with conversed with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and even though they weren't his enemies, they didn't harm him or persecute him in any way, or even oppose him. They refuse to believe.

01:05:35--> 01:05:37

And there are those

01:05:39--> 01:05:41

who never saw the Prophet salallahu it

01:05:42--> 01:05:43

and yet they believe

01:05:45--> 01:05:54

correctly is the Roman emperor and inshallah on Friday the 13th supposedly ominous state, but not really we don't believe so.

01:05:55--> 01:06:07

On Friday, the 13th shall begin the commentary of the hadith of heraclius. And in their heraclius was convert he was a Byzantine Roman Emperor. He was conversing with a boss of yarn.

01:06:09--> 01:06:21

heraclius was actually a scholar of the Christian scriptures. He was convinced that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a true messenger. And he says, If only I knew

01:06:22--> 01:06:33

that I could safely reach the Prophet Mohammed Abdullah, I would travel to him that the just chandeliers are our will undergo a great struggle to meet.

01:06:36--> 01:06:38

He was willing to wash the feet of the Prophet similar lighting.

01:06:40--> 01:06:41

However,

01:06:45--> 01:06:46

the glitter of power

01:06:47--> 01:07:03

and the seduction of worldly goods, overwhelmed and despite being intellectually convinced of the profits of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he even some of his core tears and his

01:07:06--> 01:07:18

great ones in the hole, and he spoke to them. And he tried to convince them to believe in Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

01:07:19--> 01:07:22

When they refused, he suddenly turned the tables and he said I was only testing you.

01:07:24--> 01:07:34

Otherwise, if they had agreed he would have embraced us. But if he didn't, so there are those who are convinced of the truthfulness of Islam.

01:07:36--> 01:08:10

And yet they refuse to embrace one would expect them to embrace. One would expect them to believe one would expect them to have guidance. There are others, of whom one would not imagine that they would have faith and yet they are firm in their faith. Faith is a mystery in itself. It really is. We cannot understand it. In nicoleta, the manner in the law yet the Manisha, Allah says in the Quran, addressing the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, verily you cannot guide whom you wish, rather Allah guides whom He wishes.

01:08:11--> 01:08:11

And

01:08:13--> 01:08:44

we are taught in the Koran that on the day of reckoning in the Hereafter, even the believers will say Alhamdulillah him that he had an early her the ormoc una de la la, la. All Praise be to that Allah who guarantee this to this. And we will not we will not want to find guidance had it not been for the fact that Allah guide us. It's true. In sort of Roger art, it's mentioned that a group of Bedouin came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam them, and they said to him,

01:08:46--> 01:08:58

that we are believers, and we are Muslims. And they spoke of themselves in such a way as though they were doing the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a favor by believing

01:09:00--> 01:09:11

sort of last panel who Allah says of them in the Quran, human nomadic and Islam, Allah, Allah Yes, lahmacun Bali, La Jolla, la caminhada. De

01:09:12--> 01:09:17

they boast of their favor to you, that they have become Muslim.

01:09:18--> 01:09:29

say to them, Do not boast of the favor of your Islam to me. Rather, Allah boasts of his favor to you, that he guided you to do.

01:09:31--> 01:09:32

So.

01:09:34--> 01:09:36

Faith is from the last panel.

01:09:37--> 01:09:38

It really is.

01:09:40--> 01:09:53

Deep down, every one of us has the capacity, the potential the capability, and in fact, the leightons belief to believe in Allah for Allah subhanho wa Taala says what

01:09:54--> 01:09:59

are the women who dream very yet, Shadow him Allah and forcing him to become

01:10:03--> 01:10:07

And remember when your Lord extracted from the backs of the children of Adam their progeny.

01:10:09--> 01:10:10

And Allah

01:10:11--> 01:10:12

said to all of them,

01:10:13--> 01:10:23

he made them a witness over themselves. And he said to them a list of their have become a mature Lord. And they all replied, of course, shade now we testify.

01:10:25--> 01:10:34

That is the inner conscience, that inner voice that conscience in every one of us, that recognition of a last panel with

01:10:35--> 01:10:54

that realization of faith in Allah. And it's that spark which is ignited when a person believes it's there, that is that leads them to believe it just needs to be revived. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, and ahaadeeth Coloma eluding us.

01:10:55--> 01:11:04

Every child is born on nature. The meaning of this hadith isn't that every child is born, everyone's born a Muslim, per se.

01:11:05--> 01:11:08

Or everyone is on Islam. What it means is

01:11:11--> 01:11:58

the fitrah the pure nature of every human being, if it's unpolluted, and contaminated, and affected, unclouded that pure nature of a human being will recognize a lot and be inclined to faith. And the moment it sees Islam the moment it receives Islam, the moment it receives the words of Allah and His Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that nature will accept and embrace the words of Allah and those of his messengers from the law it was sent them. However, when it's clouded, contaminated, when it's polluted, when he has layers upon layers over it, then these are barriers. But there is that inner voice that is that conscience, that is that deep

01:12:00--> 01:12:05

recognition of a last panel with Allah, it's that in every one of us, but

01:12:09--> 01:12:34

ultimately, Allah subhanho wa Taala decides who believes or doesn't believe. Now this may seem as a great contradiction between free will and the belief and belief in free will and believe in the guidance of Allah. The truth is, our minds are feeble, and incapable of understanding these realities. They really are

01:12:36--> 01:13:22

great theologians, both Muslim and non Muslim, even Christian theologians have grappled with this problem over the centuries, and the greatest of minds in all religions that are in all Abrahamic religions. And in all religions who believe in one Allah ultimately, they have always struggled with this apparent contradiction of freewill. And predestination, determinism, fate on the part of Allah, and even the greats of Christian theologians have said, ultimately, we have to live with this contradiction, because we are incapable of understanding it. And we really are, there's no surprise about that. We shut our eyes. And even though we have all our other senses, we blind to so many

01:13:22--> 01:13:25

things. We make basic, fatal mistakes.

01:13:27--> 01:13:29

We who are so feeble,

01:13:30--> 01:13:37

that we are disabled in many ways, our minds are disabled in many ways. They say a human's brain

01:13:38--> 01:13:41

is fully formed, even before birth.

01:13:44--> 01:13:49

But it's still not fully so before a child leaves the room of its mother.

01:13:53--> 01:13:57

It already has its 100 billion neurons of the brain

01:13:59--> 01:14:02

fully built, the brain is complete,

01:14:04--> 01:14:04

physically,

01:14:06--> 01:14:13

even in the womb. But at the same time, the brain is not fully developed until 20 years of age.

01:14:14--> 01:14:56

It doesn't grow any more cells 100 billion cells are formed in the womb. So what's the meaning of it's still not fully developed till the age of 20, the connections, the synapses, these things aren't fully developed, the ideas aren't fully developed. In fact, understanding is not fully developed. So when adults they have children that they just don't understand, forget three or four year olds, even an 18 year old, as a teenager, does not understand what the parents are saying what the elders are saying. Scientists say neurologists say don't blame them. The fact is, scientifically, it's a practical impossibility for them to understand

01:14:57--> 01:14:59

because they're still not fully developed.

01:15:01--> 01:15:20

Their minds are not fully developed. So if a human beings mind is not fully developed till the age of 20, and they are unable to fathom or truly comprehend what their own dad or mum is saying, How can we pretend or arrogate to ourselves the claim that we can understand the last panel?

01:15:21--> 01:15:22

How can we

01:15:24--> 01:15:28

we can't. We can't that we can't see what's behind us.

01:15:31--> 01:15:51

We can't remember what we had for breakfast. And we wish to speaking of memories, or even the mom I mentioned, who was equivalent to my mother grandmother lived in Damascus. So either Abdulaziz so great scholar, he says in my entire life, I have never written a single

01:15:52--> 01:16:09

great scholar, the season my entire life, I've never written a single Hadeeth Why? He memorized every single Hadith and he related every Hadees from memory, never wrote, never wrote a single word of heading.

01:16:13--> 01:16:29

We are feeble even in comparison to the scholars of the past. So these are great realities and truths, which we can't really understand. Ultimately, we have to accept both Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah has told us, you have a choice, you have freedom.

01:16:30--> 01:16:39

Even scientists thing theoretical physicists say that some even those who don't believe in God, they say that what you will have for

01:16:40--> 01:16:43

if anyone wants to survive, but

01:16:45--> 01:16:51

what someone will have to eat 1000s of years from now he's already pre determined.

01:16:52--> 01:17:37

But they say that not from a faith perspective. They say that speaking of physics, and the laws and the constants of the universe, so believing in the laws and the constants of the universe, and believing in the theoretical physics of the universe, they actually accept pre determinism, that everything that's supposed to happen is already decreed will happen. And there's nothing that anybody can do to change it. When it comes to the last panel with Anna. Remember, there is no concept of past present or future with in relation to Allah, because these are all constants of time. And time is a creation of a last panel at that. Time is a feature of this universe. And a law

01:17:37--> 01:18:03

has the Lord of the worlds and Hungary law have been either mean, or Praise be to allow the Lord of the worlds. There's not just one universal law knows best, how many. So if time is just a special feature of this universe, there's no guarantee that other universes have a concept of time. All this discussion of time in relation to Allah is merely an approximation to help us understand otherwise,

01:18:04--> 01:18:11

time past, present and future are all the same for love. It's this creation. So how can we understand it?

01:18:13--> 01:18:24

This is why other fate, Destiny predestination, determinism, these are subjects that we just cannot understand that they are true as Allah has described them.

01:18:26--> 01:19:00

So on the one hand, we are free, we have freedom of choice, we have free will. But at the same time, the last panel with Allah says in the color, the man you cannot guide whom you will, Allah guides whom He wills and verse after verse of the Quran and speaks of that reality. We should constantly pray to Allah for guidance. If someone is a Muslim, does that mean that they don't continue to pray for guidance? no guidance is of great degrees. And every day in every regard, we pray in a set out and must have been guided to the straight path.

01:19:01--> 01:19:12

We are forever looking for guidance and guidance leads to guidance. Guidance provides momentum for further guidance. Alas, as well Athena Zod,

01:19:14--> 01:19:59

those who have found guidance, a lot increases them in guidance and gives them that. And in sort of the last panel Donna speaks of those young men in inflicted on him as a noun Buddha, that they were a group of young men who believed in the Lord. So we increase them in their belief and in their guidance, guidance leads to guidance, we should forever pray to Allah for further guidance, the more a person is guided the more truth of the Quran and the Hadith. And our last panel data are revealed to them. And I end with one thing, the sort of laughs and the love it was in them used to constantly pray for guidance himself despite being the Messenger of Allah and Eman humble, and Imam Timothy.

01:19:59--> 01:19:59

And that

01:20:00--> 01:20:19

This all relates from the mother of the believers almost cinema huddle, the alarm, that she says the most constant of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the more successful I was young, a little bit lb Anna denecke, a one who is a flipper of the hearts, keep my heart steadfast upon your religion.

01:20:21--> 01:21:09

So she says he would excessively make this. And in fact, in my humble relates to saying, in a shadow of the alarm, so we know this from a number of companions, and a sort of article, the alarm rang almost no matter the alarm and shadow, the law, or the law, the law and the law. They all say that the province the law, it was sometimes excessive, though, was, in fact, in one generation, almost. The law when I was asked by someone, what was the most constant of Rasulullah? What was his most favorite? What was his most excessive though? And she said, Yeah, I'm a little bit Pollyanna. She then says that I asked the messenger or prophets of Allah, I see that you excessively recite this

01:21:09--> 01:21:26

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Indeed, the hearts of mankind are in between the fingers, two fingers of the fingers of a man the other, he flips them as he wishes. So he being the Messenger of Allah would pray for steadfastness, and and

01:21:27--> 01:21:46

humble relates to understand the magic or the alarm or emphases. That Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would excessively pray that young vulnerable groups will be added in a flick of the hearts, keep my heart steadfast upon your religion. So we said to him, or messenger of Allah,

01:21:49--> 01:21:51

we have believed in me,

01:21:52--> 01:21:56

and we have accompanied you. Do you still fear for us?

01:21:58--> 01:22:16

I in terms of guidance, that we will lose guidance, and these are the companions, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Indeed, for the hearts of mankind are between the fingers of a hammer and Allah. He flips them as he wishes. So and not just in the Hadith, but in the Holy Book of Allah to the

01:22:18--> 01:22:18

data.

01:22:20--> 01:22:31

In the candle, we have our Lord La Romana to not sway our hearts. Do not let our hearts go astray after you have given us guidance

01:22:33--> 01:22:39

and grantors forgiveness from yourself. Verily You are the great gift.

01:22:41--> 01:22:51

So ultimately, guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And only as the last season a verse of the Quran will show our bucola am in the month of the colloquium, Jimmy

01:22:54--> 01:23:02

Mini, he was consoling the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if your Lord wish, all who upon the earth,

01:23:03--> 01:23:04

all of them would be

01:23:06--> 01:23:45

what will you compel people until they become what meaning until they become believers? Even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam could not compel anyone to believe. Guidance only comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala not just the initial guidance of Islam, but the continuous guidance of goodness of good deeds of faith, of steadfastness upon faith, of piety of righteousness. All of this comes from our last panel with Allah. When a person is humble, Allah will open up their mind and heart when a person is arrogant, alone block his mind on heart. A lot actually says in the Quran, sorry for the Lavine.

01:23:49--> 01:23:56

I will turn away from my signs, those who are arrogant upon the earth for that right.

01:23:57--> 01:24:03

summit sold that loss as one euro cooler it will be what?

01:24:06--> 01:24:06

What

01:24:09--> 01:24:51

if they see every sign they will not believe in fact, the verse continues, if they see the path of righteousness, they will not take it as a path. But if they see the path of way witness and deviation, they will adopt that as a path. So when a person is arrogant, they see falsehood in truth and truth and falsehood. And they are unable to recognize the signs of a law. So when one humbles oneself, not just physically, but even mentally, and in heart, and they open up their mind and heart for the reality of a last panel with Allah. Allah will fill their hearts and their minds with belief with guidance. It's said that

01:24:52--> 01:24:55

silly Well, it's not a silly story but

01:24:57--> 01:24:59

Chinese philosopher Chinese have

01:25:00--> 01:25:13

This ritual of tea they drink many different kinds of teas in one session. So Chinese philosopher was teaching the students and Eastern philosophy is the rage these days. So

01:25:15--> 01:25:17

as he was teaching

01:25:18--> 01:25:21

the students capsule into Jackson capsule interrupting

01:25:22--> 01:25:33

so the with questions and statements and introductions to Chinese philosopher said enough, let's have some tea philosopher poured a cup of tea

01:25:34--> 01:25:41

to the brim. Then without 17 he took another pot and pulled the second type of tea

01:25:42--> 01:25:45

sheet and said master enough enough oven stirred.

01:25:47--> 01:25:49

What did he understand? We still haven't understood?

01:25:51--> 01:25:52

What did he understand?

01:25:54--> 01:26:10

You cannot pour the second tea from the second part without emptying the cup first, which means that if that student wishes to gain the knowledge and the wisdom of his sage and master, he must empty his heart and

01:26:12--> 01:26:39

if it's already filled with prejudgments, and clouded with preconceptions, and how will his heart and mind penetrated. Now, this doesn't mean that we empty ourselves totally. But of course, but what it does mean is that we have to humble ourselves, someone humbles themselves, Allah will guide them, someone is arrogant, not just physically. But mentally. If someone is arrogant as the last season that verse,

01:26:40--> 01:26:50

Allah will turn the signs from them. In fact, so much so that they won't even recognize the signs when they see them. They will see false it in truth and truth and falsity.

01:26:51--> 01:27:31

And they will consciously adopt the path of a witness, and they will consciously shun the path of righteousness. That's a result of arrogance. So once we humble ourselves, we choose to be the abode of Allah, Allah will guide us look how the prophets and the love it was an amazing was constantly praying. I end with this with just those two sentences. All my servants, I have made injustice forbidden upon myself, and I've made it forbidden amongst you. Therefore, do not be unjust to one another. All my servants, every one of you is misguided, except one whom I guide therefore seek my guidance and I shall guide you will continue with the rest of the headings next week in sha Allah,

01:27:31--> 01:27:44

when I will conclude with some of the la semana Abdi what a solina V and M Hamad while earlier he was in spanic law and will become the commissioner will learn the law in a structural corner.
