love with somebody I don't know Do you wanna muscle later? No. But I was earning Ibrahima in the cradle machine. Allahumma barik. Adam who do wanna come back to Allah, but I wanna Ibrahim in
respect to listeners.
Last week, I began the commentary
of the heavy offski Muslim, in fact, the very first Muslim
related by Abdullah Norman or the Allahumma, who relate to his father
who says that one day once we were seated with the messenger, some of them might even send them a man appeared
of intensity white codes.
intensely dark hair, there was no sign of journeying on him and nor did any of us recognize him until he came and sat down before the messenger something online right he was some of them and placed his knees against the knees of the messenger, some love it, some of them and then said, Mohammed.
Tell me about Islam. So the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Islam is that you bear testimony that there is no god except Allah.
And that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a messenger of Allah, and that you established Allah and you gives up,
and that you fast the month of Animal Farm, and you perform the pilgrimage of the house if you are able to find a path to it.
So the man said, You've spoken the truth. So a lot of the alarm room sees that we marveled at him that he asks and then he ratifies?
He attests the to the answer.
He then said, Tell me about EMA.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he man is that to you? believe in Allah,
His angels, his box,
his messengers in the final day, and that you believe in?
Both it's good and it's bad.
The man said you've spoken the truth.
He then said, Tell me about Exxon.
To the province of the law, it was seldom said Exxon is that you worship a law as though you see.
And if you do not see him,
then indeed he sees you.
So man said, Tell me about the final app. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the one being questioned has no more knowledge of this than the question of himself. So the man said, Tell me about its son.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the maid should give birth to him. The maid should give birth to her master.
And that you will see
Paul, shepherds and herders
competing with one another in the construction of buildings
will be a lover of essays at the moment, then left
So I waited for a while then the province of the law my legal system said to me or Dino who that is, do you know who the question is? So I said Allah His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam know best. So the Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam said, Indeed he is Djibouti, who came to teach your religion. This is the wording of Sahih Muslim. Otherwise, as I explained last week, that these can be expanded on with words from a collection of narrations from other books of Hadith. And I already did that last week. I began commenting on the heavy and I reached the parts where profits are the law legal, some of them told him what is Islam.
And from other narrations, we learn that some of the things that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him when he asked about Islam was, he said, What's Islam? Tell me about Islam? The province of the law and a sense of Islam is that you
bear testimony that there is no god except a law that permits under the law. My legal system is a messenger of Allah, that you establish Sunnah you give us a car,
that you first in the month of Ramadan, you perform the pilgrimage of the house, if you are able to find a path to it. And then from other durations, we learn that he also said and that you do,
and that you perform the person
after the major ritual impurity of Genova and that you complete the withdrawal.
So the alarm so the questioner then said,
If I do all of these things, will I be a Muslim?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, yes, you will be a Muslim. If you do, if you do all of the, all of these things, then this is where we ended.
So let's continue. I'm gonna be a lover who relates the man then said, said, Have you spoken the truth?
Or the virgin Noah who you settle who in subject matter the lover, he says that we marveled that simply found the strange that he questions a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and then he ratifies the answer himself.
So he says, You are correct. And from other narrations, we learned that the Sahaba of the unlocker even found this whole episode, to be very strange and this person to be very strange. So on that occasion, they even began muttering to one another, that
we've never seen a person like this. He comes and he questions and messenger some of the law it was on them. And then he ratifies the answer, he declares him to be correct.
As though he is more learner than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in one narration as though he is actually teaching the prophets and the love it.
So the man said to him, you have spoken the truth, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remain calm. He didn't say anything. Again.
As I mentioned last week, province that we learn from other narrations that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
I was never visited by God, except that I knew who he was, regardless of the form he adopted, except on this occasion, for I did not recognize him to be gibreel until right at the end until towards the end. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't say anything to him. And again, the shows
I mentioned last week, that it's incumbent upon a seeker of knowledge, to show respect, to be respectful.
But at the same time, it's also imperative
for the bearer of knowledge, the carrier of knowledge, the one who is imparting their intimate knowledge, to be forbearing, to be tolerant to be patient, and understand
as much as possible.
For the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he.
When the man came and placed his hands on his knees, I explained that initially he placed his hands on his own needs.
And then later he placed his hands on the knees of the province and the love and evil something, which again is an act of submission, but it is being a bit slightly forward as well and that he placed his hands on the knees of the property of the law.
Ready for Sunday? Normally the other side of the Sahaba of the labyrinth who wouldn't do that? What do you believe it appears that God related Saddam was trying to obfuscate the whole matter, and therefore deliberately conceal the fact
that he was someone special. Of course, he was strange, but he didn't. He wanted the Sahaba of the labyrinth to think
differently and that's exactly what they did. They they couldn't figure him out. They thought that he was one. He was an unrefined Bedouin.
But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam throughout showed forbearance and tolerance. He remained patient. He didn't scull the question. He didn't say anything. And indeed, this was something the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam always
luckily has set out to us, was
a perfect example of patience of tolerance, even in the face of provocation.
Bedouin would come, say things to him.
They would, to some degree, become physical, such as one, Bedouin. When the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam turned around, he grabbed his coat from behind, and yet, and yet it was such force that the prophets of the love it was seldom spun around. And it
scorch the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the edge of the blankets or the clock.
I also relate it but the prophets of the love it was how about the lover even were furious, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remain calm,
related the story of his eternal surrender of the alarm on numerous occasions was actually a Jewish rabbi.
And he had learned and read in the Scriptures, some of the signs of the final messenger of Allah. And one of the signs was that
he is forbearing and tolerant and patient.
And that provocation only increases his forbearance. So he wanted to test the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he came, and it's a long story. He,
he gave the province and the love it was to them alone.
And requested payments, it was actually what we would call, buy or sell them, which is
where the goods are given, well, he, he gave money.
he demanded payment of the product, that's a later date. And there were debts. So full stop related it. I don't wish to go into details we don't have time, but in essence, and either the love wherever relates the story that the prophets and the love ideal source approach, what is even misurina approach the prophets of the love it was an idea of the Allah who was there, and that the pediment came seeking assistance. The prophets of the love it was Sallam had nothing to offer. So they didn't seize the opportunity and said to the Prophet, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I will and I will give you some money on the understanding that you give me dates later. So prophets, Allah, Allah, it was
accepted, he gave the money and profits in the lungs and told it, you'll be allowed to give the money to that veteran who came to seek help, not just for himself or for his people, then zeta misurina approach the messenger some of the law, he was selling them at the time of collecting the dates, and he was very rude and harsh. And he actually approached the Prophet some love it, some of them, this was all an act, he wanted to test him. He He grabbed the profits of the lover and he was in and by his collar,
harangue. And although the alarm were in and the other Sahaba the alarm, were furious, and they were threatening to
And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam remained calm and patient. So, and then they sort
of the alarm, he revealed to the Prophet some of the love it or some of them, and this was later not immediately then But later, that
this was all a test.
And that indeed, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had passed the test because he was simply seeking verification of the sun.
found in the earliest scriptures of the final messenger. One of the signs was that he had seen all the others. But this was one of the signs which he hadn't seen that the final messenger will be tolerance for bearing and patient. And that provocation only increases his forbearance. And he saw that in the messenger some of the law, it wasn't them. And this is an example for us to adopt specially for those who bear knowledge for those who teach for those women part for those who are approached with questions, especially for the
seekers of knowledge, that we need to remain very patient, very tolerant. And we need to avoid becoming indignant.
So that a teacher, a bearer of knowledge,
fields, that I must be respected people must respect me.
It's it's incumbent upon the seeker of knowledge to see to be respectful. But if he or she does not show respect, then
the bearer of knowledge should be a bit more tolerant and understanding and less expect.
One can't demand respect, one can't expect to respect one needs to earn that respect. And someone isn't respectful,
and their loss.
One doesn't need to feel so angry, bitter and indignant.
Throughout the history of Islam, and throughout the history of
people of knowledge have always been disrespected. But their response has always been
the response of the messengers and the love it suddenly followed in his footsteps.
So whether you are giving there, whether you are teaching people, whether you are imparting knowledge you're sharing.
If you face provocation, if you face insolence, rudeness, disrespect.
The best response is one of tolerance, forbearance, patience.
And this is especially important for the
We always learn about respecting and respecting older man. And it's true, we should,
at the same time will among the people also need to remind themselves and remember how to be here.
Just because one has a qualification, it doesn't entitle them
to behave in any manner,
in the famous habito de da de la. And what a subtle MBA, that not really among the people
are the successors to the messengers, and Ava was Salatu was Salam. Now, this is a privilege. But the privilege
has a commensurate responsibilities.
One can't just take the privileges and some of the responsibilities.
If one wants to be a successor of the MBR, and even more Salatu was Salam. One should also inherit their knowledge, then one should also be a successor to them, in their, in their action in their applying of their, in their confidence and character. This is extremely important for them,
and for the people of aliens. So here,
the man who we know retrospectively as gibreel era has said I'm back at the time, none of them mean the way he behaved with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very crude.
And he questions the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he says to him, you are correct.
You spoken the truth. And this habit of the Allahu were offended that we're thinking what's this? He acts as though he is he behaves as though he is more knowledgeable than the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam that he's actually teaching the Prophet sallallahu sallam. These aren't my words. These are actually words of the narrations. This is what they said amongst themselves. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't say anything.
So the man said
tell me about a man.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he man is that you believe in Allah,
and in His angels,
and in his box,
and in His messengers, and in the final day
and in other and that you believe in
good and bad. And from evaluations we learned that he said he man is that you believe in Allah in the angels and the box and the messengers in the final day, in the resurrection, in death and resurrection after they're
all of it sweet and bitter, good and bad.
So the man said, If I believe in all of these things, will I be a mock? Minh would I be a believer for the profits in the long run? He said yes, you will, you will be a believer.
Now, what is EMA?
What do we mean by the word EMA. And as I explained, Islam means submission.
believe, to believe that's what it means it means to believe.
So one has to believe
And that belief is not to do with the limbs and the organs of the body. It's something to do with the mind and the heart. Its mental belief and conviction
hearts the contentment to be content with one's heart to believe, with one's heart, with one's hearts and mind.
Believe is vital.
And once correct belief is important.
In that famous verse of sorts, in which our last panel speaks about virtue, and righteousness, in which he says later than the middle right into one loo
later is not a virtue that you face that you turn your faces towards the east or the west.
Rather virtue is of that person. Now, what is this verse speaking about?
The verse is addressing
and reminding everyone, that formal ritual bodily worship
isn't the be all and end all.
It's not the only sign of virtue
and virtue is not restricted. piety, virtue, goodness, godliness, righteousness, none of these things are restricted to formal ritual worship.
And this is why the last Chronicle with their own essays that virtue is not the one Lu Hakuna, you turn your faces criminal musharaka will Muslim towards the east or the west.
Now what is this reference, even before Islam,
some of the other communities of Arabia
that lived at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that believed in Allah that had there had a religious tradition, and a tradition of rituals and formal worship apart from the pagan Arabs.
These communities, the most famous amongst them were the Jews and the Christians, the people of the book,
and both the Jews and the Christians have formal acts of worship, congregational acts of worship.
And maybe not all of them, but many of them.
In their formal ritual acts of worship, there was a whole routine they were right, they were rituals. And as part of these rituals, they would face a particular direction.
In order to worship individually or collect just as Muslims, Muslims face, the karma. They have.
other communities have their own people, they would face me to mock this Jews.
So last panel who would the ANA reveal this verse
and in there is a reminder to everyone
that virtue, goodness, godliness, righteousness, piety, all of these things are not restricted and are not confined to ritual worship, where you sit or you stand up and you face a particular direction, to a temple to a Masjid, to a house of worship. And you think that by performing that
ritual ritualistic acts of worship, you have attained virtue and piety. Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna says that is not
and primarily the messages for us.
That we do not think that all of Islam, all of goodness, all of godliness, all of taqwa all, a virtue, and righteousness and piety, is to be found only in Salah. When we stand up, we face Scribbler, and we pray Our Salah.
That is much more to religion. And then later in this verse, and last parallel with Anna categorically says, When are given the lira, this isn't virtue, that you simply face the east or the west, ie a Leibler. And it could mean any direction. It's not restricted to the east or the west, any direction, ie that that you face nibbler none wrong, that law says virtue is of those people, or of that person. And then Allah mentions, so what does he mention?
He mentioned the characteristics of those
people who are virtuous, who are pious
and have them What does he say?
What are the man that would be here that will obey Allah Sakina Wabi Sabi was a vino February Bob, welcome Sadat occur, when will former be
wasabi Deena, filbert sur
la equally equal Edina. So the
law says rather than cheese of that person who, continuing from the middle of the verse, who, who, despite the level of wealth,
to relative to the relatives, to the poor, to the orphans, to the poor, and needy,
to the traveler, to the beggars, and in the
cause of freeing.
Next, ie liberating
and who establishes salah and who gives up
and virtues of those people who fulfill their promises. When they do make a pledge. virtues are those people who are perseverance
and even in confidence, these are the ones who are truthful. These are the ones who have done well. The people have Taqwa. So Allah mentions that it's not just, it's not just ritual worship which marks persons piety, rather, all of these categories, mark a person's piety. One has to fulfill one's duty to Allah the creator as well as one's duty to the creation, fulfilling promises, fulfilling one's pledges, being honest, truthful, having integrity, remaining perseverance that means even in hardship, even in difficulty, one does not waver in one's commitment to the last parameter water on a woman's path, in one's piety,
giving well sharing wealth establishing so are giving us voluntarily spending all of these are acts of virtual reality. Now, the interesting thing here is I said I'll start from the middle of the verse before Allah mentions any of these acts of piety.
The first condition Allah mentions of virtue is when our Kindle bill, man, I'm gonna be law who would
that virtue is of that person who believes in Allah.
And in the final day,
and in the angels, and in the book, and in the prophets. And this is why in other verses of the Koran Mohammed Asana, human Vicar in our whole mcminn whoever it is good man or woman, once being a believe
so, in a belief is a condition
Even for the external acts of virtue, so one has to ensure
that one's belief is correct. One's understanding.
One's belief in Allah is correct one's understanding of lies correct. One's belief in the messengers is correct. One's understanding of the messengers is correct one's belief in the book of Allah. And his other revelations is correct one's understanding of the book of Allah. And the other revelations is also carry
belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala means one has to be
not just believing about the last panel with Allah and believing in Allah, but one has to have the correct understanding of Allah,
of who Allah is, as much as he has revealed himself. And as much as he has revealed of himself, we have to believe in those things and those qualities and those names in those attributes and those characteristics correctly.
We cannot deny
any of the laws actually.
We cannot challenge Allah in any of his attributes. We cannot attribute to Allah, what he has not attributed to himself. We cannot say of Allah what he hasn't said of himself.
On we can't deny or negate
of and about a lost crown who would honor what he has said and established of himself.
And all of this requires no
understanding one's creed one's happy that one's correct believe this is right.
It's not just some vague belief about a law
rather than one has to believe in a law correctly understand
correctly. And that means that if a lot has origin, has claimed,
and attributes, a characteristic
only for himself solely for himself, we cannot attribute any of those qualities and characteristics and attributes to any of his creation
was exclusive to Allah subhanho wa Taala we should recognize as being exclusive Tom,
to attribute those attributes and those prank trust sticks or qualities to any other last creation,
even to his prophet alayhi wa Salatu was Salam would be a dereliction, dereliction of our GT sort of lost Carnival with Allah would be a corruption of our belief, correct belief in Allah.
So when the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says here, that Eman is that you believe in Allah. It's not just a vague belief.
It should be a correct belief in the verses such as this verse in which law says, that virtue and piety of that person who man ermine a biller, who will yo mill Earth here, who believes in Allah, that means believing the last Chronicle with data as he should be believed.
The second thing that the messengers from the library
and taught me in a biller, he will alert you, Kathy, that you believe in Allah and in His angels, again, our understanding of the angel should be correct. Our belief in the angel should be correct, what could be. And I'll believe in the books of the last parameter with all of his revelations, and especially on the forum, we may not have much information about the other revelations and box because they have been superseded by the Holy court. And we have the order and witness.
And most importantly, our belief about the court should be correct our approach to the board should be correct.
That you believe in Allah who believe in the angels, and in his box, and in His messengers,
correct belief about the messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala is valid.
To claim profit, or to believe in the prophethood of someone who Allah and His Messenger have not declared to be prophets
is a corruption of that belief.
To deny the Prophet heard of any of the messengers of Allah is a corruption of that belief that is unacceptable to unless criminal.
And there's a very clear verse about this.
La says in the Medina Corona Villa who also will you reduce your furry Cobain a la hora. So, we
the Casa de la la Mancha for
those who disbelieve in Allah
and in His messengers.
And they seek to draw a distinction
between Allah and His messengers.
And who say, No.
We believe in some we deny belief in others,
and they seek to adopt a middle path in between.
These are the ones who are truly unbelievers.
So, one cannot distinguish belief amongst the messengers of a large crowd,
and primarily believe in the Holy messenger Salama rally.
And that means, one has to believe correctly about all of the prophets of Allah, and believe correctly about the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself. Again, it can't just be a vague belief that we accept the Prophet Muhammad to be a messenger.
That is not sufficient.
One has to accept the Prophet some of the love or it will send them as being a messenger, as Allah describes them in the Quran.
As he has described himself,
one has to accept his words. And probably the most famous attributes about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that he is a seal of the messengers.
But he is the final message. And then there is no prophet of Allah, no messenger to come after him. His book was a final revelation.
He himself was a final profitable.
That is correct belief in lots of data in the messengers in his revelations in his box,
that you eat man is that you believe
in the final day, in the Day of Judgment, in the resurrection,
in moderation, in general, and in the NA in general.
These are all mentioned in great detail throughout the book.
And again, it can't just be a vague belief.
And it can't just be intellectual. It can't just be mental, and simply logical.
Believe in the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but even less cruel and more than a means to love a law and to live His Messenger some of the law.
It means to have that connection, that relationship, that attachment, muslin, detached, logical mental belief, that that relationship in connection with a loss Chronicle with that, because that's where the hearts comes. To believe mentally is one thing, but for that man for that belief to settle in one's heart, so they permeates the whole heart, it permeates one's being and character, the kind of he man that even heraclius spoke off.
We have covered this in the head, Ethan heraclius.
Leave the body wearable, Sophia and was questioned by heraclius. And one of the questions was that do any of the followers of Mohammed
abandon the faith and app states and renounce the faith after having embraced it? So I've also found despite not being a believer at that time, he said, No, they don't turn away from the faith of Mohammed and they do not renounce his faith.
So later, this was one of 10 questions that he asked him, once he had completed the questions Iraqi as being a monarch,
a highly learned intelligent individual and a scholar of Christian scriptures. Very conversant. He then reviewed the questions
and provided answers.
at him, he then reviewed the questions on the answers and provided analysis. And of this he said to all Sophia, I asked you
that do any of the followers of Mohammed renounced the faith after having embraced it?
And you said no.
And this was heraclius, his reply waka then it got an email.
Sheena, to Holly to Bashar shadow guru.
That such is the case of email
when it's Dylan mingles with
when it's delight mingles with the heart.
So heraclius said,
and such as the affair of emails such as the case with the man, when it's delights, mingles with the hearts permeates the hearts. So even heraclius recognize that, that this isn't just some mental belief in the man is when
belief settles in the heart permeates the heart
enters every fiber every pore of the body
and it gives conviction such that even in the face of adversity, even in difficulty, even in hardship, even in misfortune and calamity, even under immense pressure. That relationship with Allah soprano hora de Anna is never broke, never. That's that relationship with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it's never broken. And that's why he says these later buttons from the man he called the Allah and related by mammal Hardy and others that law you know akuna
mean that one of you cannot believe one of you cannot believe until I am more benefit
his parents, his children
and all of the people and in another ID this will last again related by Manmohan Singh a Muslim but sort of lots of the latter it was in them says fell out from and couldn't a fee What did they had an email? An akuna la one Sudoku I believe?
what in your in your bag? La min, come on?
Oh, come on. Akuma
are some of them, but they are three things
which are found in a person through them. He shall taste the sweetness of the
one on the first one.
That Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are more beloved to him
than everyone else.
And number two,
that he loves a man.
He does not love him except for the sake of what does this mean? This means simply that the level of law is paramount.
First of all, the level of life is paramount.
And it's only because of the level of a law that he loves the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and the love of Allah and His Messenger, some of the love it was cinema.
And that love of Allah guides his love dictates His love, dictates his likes and dislikes, his preferences, his inclinations
is pretty predilections everything.
And that he loves another person only for the sake of a lost Colonel.
Because it's to do with Nisbett is to do with connection.
We love things we love the carrabba because of its connection to Allah will have looked good because of its connection to Allah, and so on. And the third thing is, which he found in a person he shall taste the sweetness of any man that the person dislikes
returning to disbelief, once Allah has delivered him from disbelief,
as much as he dislikes the thought of being flung into the fire,
after Allah has freedom from
and after freedom from disbelief. So this is the meaning of EMR. And it's not just some vague belief, nor is it just a mental
belief. Some academic understanding, no, true Eman is what's embedded in the heart. And in in what manner that gives a person strength steadfastness, conviction, inspiration.
It gives them life.
It helps them through calamities, misfortunes, their relationship with Allah does not change does not waver regardless of the adversity, regardless of adverse circumstances regardless of pressure. And that email is such that the person actually
taste the sweetness of you.
This is what this habit of the lover even enjoyed. That's why why would they leave what they had found? Why would they leave it? They shunned everything. They abandoned everything. to them. It didn't mean anything, even the Sahaba of the alarma who had wealth.
They were detached from the wealth.
There were many of the a lot more income, who were given wealth under Florida law firm, Emerald glass. All of these people were given immense wealth. The Mahajan were traders. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had welcome but he went on to do Colombian law was a trade Mahajan with traders. Some of them are logging wealth of this he didn't but many of them Allah gave wealth.
But for them, it didn't mean anything.
the hearts of the Sahaba of the law were clean and pure. Wealth came and went, is around them. It didn't touch them.
And they feared wealth, they feared wealth, even those who never had it, feared it.
The law for him when he visited and we'll read the tunnel gerar
he said to him, show me your Take me to your house.
He was he was a very dear friend of
mine had immense respect for a new genre. It's almost like he
the equals in many ways. And I've spoken at length about one way that the new generation of the lover and because he's a Sahabi, who's
very little is known about and very listened to spoken of him. But I've already
told him that now. Why do you insist though, you didn't want me to come to my house because Take me to your house. So eventually he took him when he entered and a way that the manager of the alarm was commander in chief of all the forces of Shah
he was the chief command the chief governor.
So when the alarm visited him at his house, he found simple a simple dwelling with meager possessions.
So I'm gonna have the alarm set to him or war may bring us your food.
So it will be the head of the alarm said there is no food in the house. He said bring us what you have. So he brought out to him wakasa which means dry nuts and pieces and he offered them to come out of the alarm or the alarm with tears in his eyes. He said oh wallpaper by Allah dunia has touched every single one of his exceptions.
Of course, he was being humble and one of the love was just being humble. He was very,
a mighty man.
He was extremely, he had everything to be proud for proud of. He was a medium meaning.
His forces had smashed the sassanid Persian Empire. They now ruled huge swathes of land of Byzantine Rome, wealth flowed into the coffers of Medina, the whole of Arabia
and the world beyond paid homage to Omar Abdullah hapa.
And yet, he walked to the staff, slept on the floor, slept on the ground, walked alone, lived alone, rode a donkey, if needed, rode a camel if needed, walked on foot foot, had patches on his clothes, wept before people humbly accepted the correction of people, once he was speaking, and are speaking about knowledge.
And not just respect and humidity for those who seek knowledge, but forbearance and patience and humility on the part of those who impart knowledge. This was Barbara Viola one. And he spoke and he said oh people do not increase the map. The Diary do not give excessive data, excessive amounts in dairy. So a woman stood up and she said, Oh, I want to own meat and what meaning how can you say that? When the last panel with Allah says in the Quran, that what I think
ferrata the minutia
that when one of you has given a hoard in power means a hold
When one of you have given has given in diary, a hole, then do not take anything of it meaning when you want when you want a divorce, so a lot of the law was corrected before a whole congregation
by a woman
Mr. odium law firm, was not the least indignant, was not the least embittered or angry in rage, rather, he accepted in him. That was his relationship with we love to debate on one of the alarm was a scholar, a lead.
And yet, when the arm was recited before him or the loved ones novo habits was, he would immediately fall side. Wouldn't he wouldn't say a word, never.
So we're gonna do a lot more like all the others, or how about the lover who was extremely humble? I spoke about the humility of the Sahaba of the lover and who, and yet I didn't mention any of these examples. One simply because you could say so much about the humility of every single companion.
Senator Warren Bader
dunia has touched every one of his exception. This is how this habit of the allaahu where wealth may have come, may have gone, wealth may have surrounded them. But their hearts were untouched by the wealth. They were untouched by the dollar.
That was their level of email, because their agenda was in their hearts
regardless of what raged around,
and that's me, man, we can only imagine we can only dream of such we really can't.
This is why our Eman is so weak.
So how about your loved one, they saw something, they experienced something.
They felt something, they lived a reality. They lived such a reality. That it was as though gentlemen Gentlemen before
they were in a different way. They truly were.
And that's why when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left all they long for us to be with the messenger.
That's all they longed.
In the past that have been the rumors spread that the prophets and the love it was saying was engine. Once the alarm.
He was told
prophets of the love it was not the rumor hadn't spread that he was injured, he wasn't the rumor had spread that he had actually passed away. So once I have, you know, the alarm stood up. And he said to those who are around and he said, Well, if the Messenger of Allah is no more and no longer with us, then there is no joy in life after him. So he went and replenished himself
into the forest. That's how the Sahaba of the allow for them, there was no meaning to life without a sort of lottery. So that was
when we speak about emotion in all of these things, we're not just talking about a mental belief, some academic understanding, that the man should be reflected in one's heart.
And it should be embedded.
It should be settled.
It should govern the whole of one's character. And it should be such that one can actually taste the sweetness of
and that cannot be achieved without living a life as it should be loved.
Living Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam as he should,
secondary to our last panel.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continued that you believe in all of these things in the fire in gentlemen, gentlemen, in the final day in the resurrection.
And what's true, believe in the resurrection.
He said, You believe in the resurrection was true. believe in the resurrection, in one narration, that you believe in death, and that you believe in the resurrection of the death.
That we all understand that we will die.
Everyone knows that they will die.
to be live, do we behave as though we are going to die?
We have mental belief about resurrection a person can't be and what makes a Muslim a believer without believing mentally at least that there is life after death that is resurrect that is a resurrection.
we may have that mental belief but do we live as though there is life after death? Or do we live as though this is the only life as a lot of quotes of the pagan Arabs who did not believe in the resurrection
but the pagans despite all their superstitious beliefs, it was remarkable. The pagan Arabs or Asian, the other pagan Arabs in Arabia, they had immensely superstitious beliefs. They believed in omens, they believed in
evil. They believed in fortune telling soothsaying, witch doctors,
They believed in all of these things.
They believe in
shamans and similar people. But despite all these superstitious beliefs and superstitious practices,
they did not believe there was life after death.
So their superstition, or their belief in the spiritual realm only extended as far as life extended.
But after death is that there's no life after death. And they used to say an unlock hopelessness in the Koran in here in La Jolla, tuna, dunya Namu tuna woman saying that there is there is no life but this life,
we die and we live.
And we will not be resurrect.
So they lived accordingly. This is why the court case has such emphasis in many different sorts of the court in many different suits. This is one of the reasons why one of the key messages in the whole of the Macan period was about resurrection and life after death, because the Arabs even mentally refuse to believe in the possibility of life after death in resurrection.
So it can't just be a mental belief.
It has to be a belief, by practice, by example by action. So we need to ask ourselves,
do I really do I live as though there is life after death? Or do I live as though as a last as there is no life except this life we live in we die and we want to resurrect.
So that's true believe in life after death. That one prepares for that life after that one prepares for that resurrection. And that means accountability.
That's why I'm sort of feeling lost and hoarder. Anna says
I know your room all day.
to these people not think,
do they not believe that they will be resurrected?
Naomi, Navin yo mucuna me that they will be resurrected on a great day on the day when people should stand before the Lord of the worlds. Now, this is a very precise verse, because what it shows prior to these verses, Allah speaks about people being dishonest being sprinters.
So, what they do is that when it comes to taking the tape more, when it comes to giving they give less in weighing in measuring and scaling in trading.
So all I say is
what do they not think that they will be resurrected? What that verse shows is that corrupt behavior, sinful behavior, lack of morals, lack of scruples, unscrupulous behavior. All of this arises from a lack of belief in resurrection, and in accountability. If someone thinks there is no life after death, or lives as though there is no life after death. If someone lives as though there is no resurrection, that there is no accountability, there is no standing for Allah.
Then a person will be corrupt, will be immoral will be indecent will lack scruples and ethics will be utterly unscrupulous and ruthless.
Because there is no break on the behavior.
There is no fear.
There is no sense of accountability. None whatsoever.
But if someone has that true belief in the resurrection,
True believe in life after death,
then a person will live as though there is a life after death will live and behave as though there is a resurrection will live and behave, knowing that there is accountability to Allah.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Isn't that idea that you believe in death in life after in the resurrection after death. And the final thing which he mentioned, and I'll end with this is what the other side he or she
told the man who said, Tell me about he man, he man is that you believe in Allah and the angels in the box and in the messengers.
And in the final day, and that you believe would put me in a bit of other sad he will show me that you believe in each other.
It's good and it's bad.
This is a very contentious topic.
It may even be very confusing.
It is baffling. It is confused.
It's not straightforward.
It's a conundrum.
And what is other
that we believe that a lot of what data has already destined everything,
that everything is pre determined,
There is a fate.
That last panel with the ANA not just knows what will happen.
But that Allah subhanho wa Taala has determined what will happen.
Allah has a creator of destiny.
Allah has a determiner of destiny.
Allah is the master of the decree.
Do we create our own fate?
Or does Allah create things?
And it's an age old question.
And it's very confusing, it's baffling.
And, in fact, Imam Muslim back with the law, he really
he relates as Heidi, I mentioned that this is a first hand ethos he Muslim,
but that I've only actually related the latter part of the heavy there's a story prior to the narration of the heading.
And the story is as follows the man Muslim relates with his chain of narration to the Dabiri, yada yada,
yada, yada and ourselves. Now, this is actually the forehead if you haven't yet another savings. That imbecile.
misurata was one of the intellectual centers
of early Islam, Muslim Kufa. These were the two principal cities of era at that time. And they were the centers of learning of great intellectual activity. In fact, the laws of Arabic as we know them today, meaning the form of formal formulated laws of Arabic, as we know them today, were
ultimately set in Basra and Kufa.
And that's why you had the traditional cufon School of Arabic, the Muslim School of Arabic grammar. So in grammar, you have the cufon school and the bustling school.
These were the two main cities where
the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu were in Iraq where the where the students land where the spread, Islam spread.
Being a center of great intellectual activity, people would ask questions, and there was a mixing of cultures and a great learning that was taking place at that time. So one of the debates that arose was
since many people were bringing in other philosophies and these discussions
So yeah, Hebrew Aramaic, this therapy says that one of the first people to speak about other in Basra was Maribel Gianni.
And this creates a great confusion. So he said, I
really wanted to speak
to some of the companions that are the law
relating to this, and he said, I am my companion,
man and Hermione, we both went to Morocco for hydro formula.
So, we both desired that if only we could meet one of the companions of the alarm
and speak to them related to this. She said lo and behold, when we arrived at the masjid, meaning Alicia haraam, who do we meet at the door, none other than Abdullah.
So we both approached him, my companion on one side on one side, and I knew that my companion would expect me to speak and assign responsibility to speaking to me. So I said to Abdullah, no matter the allogram, the Oh, Abdullah, oh, man, there are people in bussola who seek knowledge because they were intellectually active, they seek knowledge.
And they are very active. But
they say about other they say about destiny, about fate,
there is no such thing as pre determinism. There is no such thing as predestination. That's my translation. He said, There is no such thing as other. Rather, when I'm not one of which means the matter is spontaneous. ie there is no pre determinism. There is no predestination. But everything happens randomly haphazardly, without pre determinism without predestination without fate, and that everything is spontaneous.
So I'm delighted. The Allahu Allah when he heard this, he said to Yammer, Yammer, he said, Go on, inform them, go on inform
that I am free of them, and they are free of me. We have nothing to do with each other.
And by Allah, if one of
if one of them have the equivalent of man's offered in gold, and then he spent it IE in the way of Allah, it still would not be acceptable from him until I mean a bit of other until he believes.
And then he said, I heard my father above the law can relate to me vaynerman Rasulullah sallallahu. It was a law to that one day whilst we were seated with the Messenger of Allah. So this is the background to the whole story. I'm delighted normally Allah actually relates this whole hadith of gibreel. From his father out of the power of the law, specifically in relation to
this is the backdrop to the story. So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says we're talking about it, he was shoveling that you believe in butter, it's good, and it's bad. And in the other narration, you believe in other all of it,
sweets, other ambetter
good and bad, that all of it is from last panel.
as I said, it's a conundrum.
It's extremely interesting. It's very complex. It's a mystery.
And our only explanation is that this is something which is beyond our understanding is beyond our capacity.
Traditionally, Goldsmith's used to have very fine delicate scales
on which they would put gold dust on the pins of the scales.
If you were to take
that scale and place a bold on it's what happens, it crushes
may be truly astounding.
But we are limited in our capacity in our ability in our senses. We are extremely limited.
Our taste suffers. If it's not accompanied by the sense of smell. That's how weak we are. Our taste suffers if it's not a company,
By the sense of smell, if our sense of smell is impaired, automatically, our sense of taste is impaired. That's how weak we are.
When it comes to intellectual strength and ability, even monkeys can outperform us in many tasks.
Even when it's to do with numbers,
orcas. Killer Whales perform better than us when it comes to simple mental tasks, some of them So, although Allah has endowed us with an amazing mind and amazing brain, and unbelievable intelligence, it's still extremely limited as a last as
Do you know, we can't even understand what's in us. We have MRI scanners.
We have mapped the human genome
we have explored. And we know the different areas of the mind that bollock the mind the brain,
we know which parts of the brain control which functions and which senses, we've gone down to the microscopic level, the genetic level of DNA and RNA, and the information encoded in DNA and RNA. We know so much about all of these things.
we've landed a man on the moon.
Now, please, once I said this, and someone actually sent me a whole DVD
saying, How dare you believe in such conspiracies? Okay.
We told it's been narrated to us, it's been narrated to us that
what a wiener, it's been narrated to us, that man has landed on the moon.
we've explored the oceans, we've explored the planets, we've explored the moon, we've achieved all of these things. And we pride ourselves on our technological advancements, on our science, on our discoveries, and our knowledge. And despite all of this, we still don't know
who we are. What distinguishes us, from other animals.
What grant says higher intelligence, higher emotion, a sense of purpose.
Scientists still say that we are the only known species,
or living organism, in the entire universe, despite its vastness, that actually sees itself understands itself, to some degree knows itself, and is aware and conscious of itself.
We are regularly told that this
brain, this gray matter, is the most complex thing known to us in the entire universe. Despite all of that, we still don't know who we are in the sense
that what gives us life, what makes us human? What is that spirit?
Some people call it the mind, some people call mind as distinct from the brain. Some people call it the ego. Some people call it the super ego. Some people call it the self, some people call it the spirit. Some people call it by another name, being some people call it the essence, whatever name you give it.
All of these names in Arabic translate into one thing, the rule,
despite all our knowledge and understanding, we don't know the rule.
And Allah says of that,
we are cellula garinii rule, only rule from in America be determined in the law.
And they asked you about the rule. The spirits say to them, that the rule is a matter of my Lord, and you have not been given except very little knowledge. So we are limited in our capacity to understand we can't and understand ourselves. What happened at the beginning of the universe. What happened at the very beginning? How did it all come up come about?
What's the correct belief? What's correct theory? What's the correct version and explanation?
Allah says in the poor
mash had to help us somehow they want
to see him. Oh my
god, Lena aguda Allah
I did not make them a witness unto the creation of the heavens and the earth, and nor are witness into their own creation. And I am not one to take those who lead others into error as an assistant. What does that mean?
Who can't understand ourselves? Who can't remember what we have for breakfast?
who, despite knowing so much don't know what's inside us?
Who don't know what makes us us?
How can we purport to know what happened at the beginning of creation? How can we purport to know what will happen later? How can we purport to understand the mystery of others?
It's beyond our understanding. And in fact, scientists, some scientists, astrophysicists and others, even in science, not in a philosophical sense, but in a scientific, astrophysical sense. They speak of pre determinism and predestination, as though there is one an alterable path
of time in the universe, that nothing can change it.
And a perfect example of that is imagine retrospectively, in hindsight, were always wise, oh, then I wish I could have done this, I wish I could have done that. I wish this would have happened, that would have happened. But you know what?
So many different forces of the universe, even from a scientific perspective, so many different forces of the universe. So many different factors, all came together, to create those unique peculiar circumstances in which something happened. Now, even if
it was possible, and we were to turn back the clock, and we were to go back to how things were then
the same circumstances, the same forces, the same factors would all come together to replicate the exact same circumstances leading to the same conclusion.
Truthfully, we cannot understand, we don't.
And therefore, we believe
we believe in the last panel with the answers but without truly being able to understand that we believe in the rule, without being able to understand it, we believe in these things without being able to fully invest.
And the truth is, it makes sense we have very little time.
We have very little time.
In our lives, we have a limited amount of energy,
physical as well as mental,
And belief in others is actually liberating. It truly is.
It gives a person a sense of peace, except
how things are.
Last round of essays
masaba mean, we'll see but then fill out of the one RFP and the full circle, in Laffy Kitab in Nebraska, in the valley. kalamaki see, like a lotta swadharma what are the fact
that no misfortune no calamity befalls you?
Neither on earth or in your cells, except that it is in the book, before we cause it to come to pass. Indeed, this is easy for Allah.
And then the last season the next verse, this is why, why are you being told this? Why should you know this? Why should you accept this in the next verse, Michaela, that So Adam,
so that you may not regret that which has missed you.
And so that you know, you may not be exultant and arrogant, over that which Allah has given
us lot does not lie, every boast for arrogant swaggering purse
in in another store in salt of the harbor Allah say so beautifully, Masami will see but in elaborate isn't in there or may not mean Billa he.
law the cliche marine law says no calamity befalls you
except by the command of a law
And whoever believes in Allah, Allah, Allah will guide his heart. And man, I like to take solace when I read that verse in knowing that if I believe in the power of Allah, Allah will guide my heart to solace to comfort to rest,
to settlement content.
What are the choices there?
Some things happen.
How can you resist something that already is?
How can you fight something that's already happening?
How can you as one individual fights other? And if you don't believe in Allah, then looking at it from a scientific perspective, how can you as one feeble, humble individual, fight the forces of the universe?
The other of the last panel with Allah if you believe in it, your heart will find peace and contentment and this is one of the conditions of the man when we say amen. In other it's not just a mental belief, but an active belief of the heart, in the manner that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described to Abdullah are both of the elaborate
or famous long deeper parts of the headiness and that no our child our land
whatever was going to meet she was never going to miss you.
And whatever was going to miss you was never going to meet
that is part of email and there are many other how the Earth would speak of this that a person cannot be unlocked when a person cannot truly believe until he believes that what is what was going to befall him would never have missed missed him and what was going to miss him was never going to meet
and as I say in English a missus as good as a mile which means that sometimes you regret I was that close I was that close. But you know what, what it was a few millimeters away or it's a mile away doesn't make a difference they missed you.
So I miss is as good as a mind.
So it's not again, just a mental but it's not again, just a mental belief, but rather an active belief of contentment of the heart or conviction of the mind.
That is part of email. So the province of the law, it was seldom said well don't mean a bill of lading he was shoveling that you believe in leather. It's good and it's bad.
When he said this, the man said so that again. He said you've spoken the truth. Then the man went on to say artifacts, but in the early lesson, He then said So tell me about it. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him about son, and inshallah I'll continue with the remainder of the next week or so the law was in America and he was sued in the Vietnam.
Marine. Stronach a lot more
in that and stuff.
