May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from the heat of the fire of Johanna.

00:03:41--> 00:04:22

All praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We praise Allah azza wa jal, we seek Allah subhanho wa Taala as assistance and we seek the guidance of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evils of ourselves and the adverse consequences of our deeds. Whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon then none can misguide that person, and whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees misguidance upon the man can guide him, and peace and salutations be upon Mohammed Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:04:24--> 00:04:46

are servants of Allah and all children of Adam. All praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala for gathering us yet again, in a house from his many houses to learn from the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and to learn from the inheritance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a hadith which is so

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

much the Morocco multivitamin mineral utility to Allah, yet Lu Nikita biLlahi rasuna Hema Bina home in La mesilla to LA Hema Sakina wash iya tomo Rama

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

have fed Rahim al mela aka whether carambola human in the pursuit of loss Allahu alayhi wa sallam says that there's no group of people that come together in a house from the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They come together to recite the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and to study all together, the lessons in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala except that Allah subhanho wa Taala causes contentment to descend upon these people. And Allah subhanho wa Taala showers this group of people with his mercy and Allah subhanho wa Taala commands the melodica to surround this particular gathering. La ilaha illa Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned this gathering to those that

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

are with him.

00:05:52--> 00:06:41

La ilaha illa Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from amongst dimensioned Ameen. The topic for today is the double and tobacco it's not the normal topics that we normally find and thus, you might find the mannerism of today's talk, tread a different path, but inshallah bear with me, and hopefully, with the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The lessons that I intend to share with you all will be shared between Lucha Allah. before we delve into the topic, we must remember that which I said yesterday, and that is that we didn't leave our homes except to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. We didn't come here for entertainment, nor did you come here because of the speaker.

00:06:41--> 00:07:21

Rather, you came here because of the message. You came here because of the inheritance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that is to be shared. And remember the subtle message I shared with you yesterday that we need to monitor ourselves and our sincerity. And we need to ensure that we don't attach ourselves to personalities, we have not come to see personalities. Rather we attach ourselves to the message of Muhammad Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because it's this message that should bring you all out of your homes and not any personality. The verse you're sitting here should be the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And from the outset, you should purify your intentions,

00:07:21--> 00:07:37

so that this exercise becomes a means of building our agenda. And that this exercise becomes a means of making our skills heavy on the day of piano our skills of good deeds heavy on the day of pay ama May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding, I mean,

00:07:40--> 00:08:10

the double entry visa to Arabic terminologies that share similar meanings even though the scholars tend to use a particular noun for a particular concept and the and another noun for another concept. The dub bore is an Arabic terminology. It comes from the Arabic verb, the de Barra yetta de baru de Bora. It comes from the Arabic verb, the de barra de barro de Bora. And

00:08:12--> 00:08:20

this particular terminology refers to taking a step back, taking a step back from a particular matter.

00:08:22--> 00:08:51

And in context, it refers to pondering over something. And the reason why the scholars have attached this particular word to what we know as deliberation and pondering over something is because whenever you study a matter, it's healthy to take yourself outside of that matter and look at it from the outside. When you look at the metal from the outside, you tend to learn things that you would not learn if you left yourself inside the meta verse, it's called the double bar.

00:08:52--> 00:09:04

And we know the famous example of the cow that has a rope attached to its nose. And sometimes it works. And this rope

00:09:05--> 00:09:57

becomes stuck under the cows feet. And as this cow wants to move, it pulls against the rope, and it hurts this cow so it remains stuck in the same spot. It can't move forward anymore. But if you took a step backwards, it can resume its journey. So sometimes we need to take a step backwards, so that we can move forwards and this is the general understanding of the foot core is similar in context to the De Boer, and it's derived from the web traffic Cara yetta, Kuru the Quran. And the fact core comes from the three letter verb in the Arabic language, which denotes one's ability to think about something. So it's a verb attached to cognitive ability, our ability to think about something and

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

our abilities to think is a blessing.

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

from Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah and this is what separates us from the other creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala our ability to think and analyze situations and circumstances and that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses our intellect in many places in the Quran, in the ayah that I recited Allah subhanho wa Taala paved for us and analogy. Why an analogy because we do have an ability to analyze, and Allah subhanho wa Taala in his book in many places in the field elica yet liko me yet a cartoon in Effie Delica yet in leoline nuha a fella tampilan, a fella to the Quran and so on and so forth. Allah subhanho wa Taala time and time again

00:10:50--> 00:11:39

instructs our intellect, because we are people of understanding and if we fail to observe this cognitive ability, which we have been blessed with, then that is enough, and that is a defect and that is a problem indeed. So Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses our intellect because this intellect, a gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala is also a means of us recognizing the Presence of Allah subhanho wa Taala. a means of us understanding Allah subhanho wa Taala even more. And this is true. If we used our intellect and looked at the surroundings that Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed around us, we will easily for those who ponder, witness Allah subhanho wa Taala witness the magnitude of the

00:11:39--> 00:11:44

greatness and power and majesty of Allah or Buddha is that he will gll Allah.

00:11:45--> 00:11:57

Allah had el Faro de Samad Allah de la Amelie wala mula lead. Well, I'm Nicola Hakuna had Allah subhanho wa Taala nurtures us upon this concept of difficult

00:11:58--> 00:12:52

so Allah subhanho wa Taala does not only instruct it, but he nurtures our usage of it. Today in Salah through Jomo Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed in his book in which we recited Allah subhanho wa Taala said of Allah Yong buena 11 kafer Julio, Allah subhanho wa Taala ask us, asks us have we not looked at the camera and it's not a matter of merely looking at it, rather, understanding it? Have you not looked at it and understood how this camel has been created? how Allah subhanho wa Taala has created it for the most rugged regions on the face of this earth. But this camel can live without our daily necessities for days. It has the ability to lose half of its weight and still

00:12:52--> 00:13:42

survive. And there's no other creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala that can lose half its weight and still survive. How this camera has been created, with the furry lines in its ears and the longer eyelashes on its eyes to manage the desert dust this region that this camel has been created to stay in how this camel has been blessed with appropriate feet with the necessary netting and webbing that can prevent this camel from sinking into the soft desert sand. Even though this camel can weigh up to 700 kgs that ilaha illAllah 700 kgs and not just the weight of this camel alone we can add to this weight when we use this camera to carry our loads and to carry ourselves Fela ilaha illAllah

00:13:42--> 00:14:28

indeed there is no one worthy of worship besides one Allah subhanho wa Taala so this is difficult or servants of Allah and this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala has nurtured us upon Allah subhanho wa Taala says, what a lesser man cave for ruffians? Allah draws our attention to the skies, and how the sky has perfectly been raised as a canopy above us, without pillars, which we can see behind the Ahmed in Corona without pillars which we can see. So pan or bl Allah, a perfect rising, a perfect canopy with no cracks and no breakages.

00:14:30--> 00:14:59

The sky that is vital to our survival has its ability as Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted it to return moisture back to earth and return other necessities of man as well. Such as the radio waves that we all enjoy and is extremely necessary especially in this day and age. For Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala nurtures us upon the fucker and says have you not looked at the sky and seen how

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

Lots of Anahata Allah has raised it, have you not looked at it and thought about it and pondered over it and understood how Allah subhanho wa Taala has made it a means of blocking those harmful aspects to yourself and myself. Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is most deserving of all praise Allahu Akbar. Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says we're in LG Bal, k philosophy but have you not looked at the mountains and how Allah subhanho wa Taala has pegged them.

00:15:33--> 00:16:24

Allah subhanho wa Taala has pegged the mountains so that this earth does not shake with our movements as a blessing to us so that we enjoy stability on Earth. Yes, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, Have you not seen how we've pegged the mountains and if you ponder over the Quran, you find that Allah subhanho wa Taala describes fear around and the people of your own as will attack will, oh Tad, people were fearful of your own because of the size of his army. When your own used to camp an army, you'd see a sea of white tents. So Allah subhanho wa Taala describes him as dill, O Tad, he used to peg tents. But Allah subhanho wa Taala affirms his greatness and says that you peg

00:16:24--> 00:16:29

tents, but we peg mountains, what llg Bell came from Lucy back

00:16:30--> 00:16:58

in the theoretical area to the komiya Takeru. This is the servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam. So Islam has nurtured us to be productive thinkers, not people who waste our minds thinking of that which is irrelevant. So Allah has blessed mankind with intellectuality but bless the believers with that which brings out the best of the intellectuality

00:17:01--> 00:17:03

May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding,

00:17:04--> 00:17:10

Allah subhanho wa Taala always nurtures us towards pondering over two important aspects.

00:17:11--> 00:17:13

One is the creation around us.

00:17:15--> 00:18:03

And the next aspect is the mightiest of all science. The miracle for this oma and that is the Ayat of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that is why we call them ix but we don't call them verses, we call them ayat. But we don't call them verses. It is a weak translation to translate it as a verse But sometimes because of necessity, we have to stick to the term verse and ayah is a verse plus more. And I A is the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala plus a sign of the Presence of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala because it's a miracle and that which cannot be changed. Thus, Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us to take

00:18:03--> 00:18:10

heed of these is that he revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam via jabril alayhi salatu was Salam.

00:18:12--> 00:18:16

The Olam our lemma, they say when we talk about

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

thinking

00:18:19--> 00:19:10

over the meanings in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala when it's more appropriate to use the word double, even though it's possible for us to use the word de facto. But when Allah subhanho wa Taala himself instructs us to take heed regarding the ayat in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala uses the word taboo. And we will see this just now. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book, when the fourth Jews, he says, teaching us that this topic of the Dublin Core is the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This topic of the Quran is a means of beautifying our agenda. This topic of the Quran is a means of us making our skills of good deeds on the day of pm. And remember I said earlier that yes,

00:19:10--> 00:19:25

we all have intellect, but the believers have the tools and the arsenal necessary to utilize their intellect in a way no other human being can. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the whole is

00:19:26--> 00:19:27

anyone out

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

anyone?

00:19:32--> 00:19:40

Allah subhana wa COVID

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

Pina

00:20:05--> 00:20:14

Allah subhanho wa Taala says praising the believers in the Help is somewhat indeed in the creations of the heavens.

00:20:15--> 00:21:02

Well out of and this was the laughing lady when ha and the differences in the day and the nights and we know that there are many differences. We have differences in the length of the day and the night. We have differences in the temperature of the day and the night. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in this is yet signs for who will Al Bab those of understanding those who observe difficult and those who observed that the poor, who are they? Yeah, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says they are those yes the Quran Allah, they remember Allah subhanho wa Taala tm and once they are standing will corrode and once they are sitting where Elijah will be him once they are laying on the sides wait

00:21:02--> 00:21:30

for Karuna somehow it will and they ponder and reflect over the creation of the skies and the earth. What is the net result of this process? The net result of this process is that they recognize Allah subhanho wa Taala The net result of this process is that they become in all of Allah subhanho wa Taala verse they say,

00:21:31--> 00:21:35

Our Lord Sakina cannot protect us from the hellfire.

00:21:37--> 00:21:42

This is difficult. And this is how we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala through tobacco.

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

tobacco

00:21:46--> 00:22:25

is something that we know about. But sadly, we live in a state of heedlessness regarding it, because this is the way of Chopin, he spins us and he bases our minds with with the letter that we forget the greater we travel us to work every day. But we forget to witness the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala around us, we seek the sustenance of Allah subhanho wa Taala every day, but we fail to witness the reality of the sustenance and that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says folium Buddha's insane Illa to me, that let mankind Look at his sustenance

00:22:26--> 00:22:57

and the reality of its being and how it comes to him. La ilaha illa Allah socially upon spins us, and he places us in a state of heedlessness a state whereby we see but we don't witness we hear, but we don't listen, we learn, but we don't understand. And this is not the way of a believer, a believer is that entity that listens, that entity that witnesses that entity that understands when we learn, it's not about data collection.

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

And this is a message to the parents, and a message to the teachers. When you share knowledge, it's not about data collecting for your students, or for those within your sphere of influence. It's about igniting minds and hearts one child at a time. It's about inspiring minds. And this doesn't happen except when we make those that we teach, understand that which they learn how many of us have spoken to our children, about the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala or we might have read to them this ayah in the Quran, in the hope is somehow it will, we might have been a means of the memorizing this particular idea. But how many of us have made them understand it? How many of us have made this

00:23:44--> 00:23:50

is a means of the tarbiyah a means of their development.

00:23:51--> 00:23:58

a means of them recognizing Allah subhanho wa Taala more than they did before we taught them this.

00:23:59--> 00:24:02

So understand. It's not about data collection.

00:24:04--> 00:24:15

When, for example, we teach them about this famous amazing creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala called the blue whale.

00:24:17--> 00:24:59

We've taught our children about it, but how have we taught them? Have we taught them in a way that they witness Allah subhanho wa Taala in their learning, that they understand Allah subhanho wa Taala in the learning that they listening during the learning this memo that is 30 meters long, the biggest creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala on Earth, this mammal that weighs 200 tons, the Illa Illa Allah, how many trucks Do you need to carry? A 200 ton creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala a creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala that has a tongue which is heavier than an elephant

00:25:01--> 00:25:06

So cannot be a tongue which is heavier than an elephant.

00:25:07--> 00:25:12

It has a mouth that can hold 90 metric tons of food and water.

00:25:17--> 00:25:44

So we learned these facts, but it will not think Suppan a lady halaqa her the Samak, Glory be to Allah subhanho wa Taala, who created this fish, and what needs to be created to sustain and feed this fish? So Pandora virada a mouth that can hold 90 metric tons of food and water ponder or servant of Allah who feeds this creation, and what must this creation eat?

00:25:46--> 00:25:48

Now let me show you a little bit more.

00:25:53--> 00:26:04

This creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala even though it has a mouth that can hold 90 metric tons, if it swallowed a beach ball, it would probably suffocate to death.

00:26:06--> 00:26:17

If it swallowed something, the size of a beach ball, it would probably suffocate to death. Because yes, it has a mighty mouth, but it has a narrower throat.

00:26:19--> 00:26:30

So again, I ask because we might have thought that there must be something huge in the ocean that Allah has placed to feed this even bigger creation of his subhanho wa Taala

00:26:31--> 00:26:40

servants of Allah and oh Children of Adam. This whale lives have something called krill

00:26:42--> 00:26:48

and krill is something that is one to two centimeters in size.

00:26:50--> 00:26:58

So I asked again, how much crew needs to exist in the ocean to feed this mighty whale?

00:27:00--> 00:27:10

So we've learned the facts, but when we learnt it did we think of the ayah in the Trump Jews, we Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:27:11--> 00:27:13

on me

00:27:15--> 00:27:19

but in fill out will be in

00:27:20--> 00:27:21

here is

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

Mr. raha one mudstone

00:27:28--> 00:28:03

kulu Fi kita d mu B in Allah subhanho wa Taala says, A no moving creature is there on Earth, but its provision is due from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he knows its dwelling place and he knows its deposit. And all of this is in a clear book. When you learn these facts are servants of Allah. Did you think of the ayah in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala when Allah subhanho wa Taala said, What do you mean dead button? Let me loose kaha Allahu Zuko. halwa yakko

00:28:04--> 00:28:17

did we ponder over the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala said, and so many a moving creature carries not its own provision. It is Allah subhanho wa Taala who provides for it and view.

00:28:19--> 00:28:46

Thus, a believer, once again, never sees raava witnesses, never hears, rather listens, never learns, rather understands. This is who we are as servants of Allah. We're not shallow people, we are people of substance, we are people of substance, every second of our life should be the recognition of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is who we need to become.

00:28:48--> 00:28:50

And this is difficult in a nutshell.

00:28:55--> 00:28:56

And we begin

00:28:59--> 00:29:27

the who servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam, and I want to concentrate on this more because I think this is where the oma has a bigger problem with regards to it's the concept of the W. The w as I said earlier, is that concept attached to deliberating and pondering over the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the ideas that exist in this book. If we analyze the oma today, we see that Alhamdulillah from them are those that memorize the Quran

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

and from them are those that recite the Quran

00:29:33--> 00:29:41

and from them are those that listen to the Quran. And from them are those that observe all three will allow him.

00:29:42--> 00:29:49

But understand that no matter when Zilla Li K, you stammer la he was

00:29:50--> 00:29:52

one my own Zilla Lika young

00:29:54--> 00:29:56

woman Zilla Li k ukara

00:29:57--> 00:30:00

this Quran was not revealed so that it

00:30:00--> 00:30:34

could just be recited or that it could just be memorized or that it could just be listened to bal. Zilla Leah de baru. Aya t Walia. Takara Al Bab, the score an O servant of Allah, rescore an O child of Adam, the essence behind its revelation was so that yourself and myself we could ponder over the meanings of these is and so that those of understanding would remember. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book kita boon

00:30:36--> 00:30:40

la Come on cool Leah de baru

00:30:42--> 00:31:02

Juanita cara, Al Bab, Allah subhanho wa Taala says a blessed book we have revealed to you or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam why so that they may ponder over it is ponda Walia Kazakh, Kuru Al Bab and so that those of understanding will remember.

00:31:03--> 00:31:20

Now, the question that we have to answer is how many of us are people of the double? Yes, we recite yes we memorize. Yes, we listen to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala treats recitation, but how many of us are people of de Boer?

00:31:21--> 00:31:52

And to put this concept of the web into perspective, I want to share with you two is in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The first one is with Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, Allah yetta de Barun Al Quran whenever you can, I mean in the hydrilla lava to Fie TLF and kathira Allah says do not ponder over the ayah in the Quran and had the score and been from come from other than Allah subhanho wa Taala you would have found in it many a contradiction.

00:31:53--> 00:32:17

And the second area is Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in Surah, Mohammad of Allah tada Barun Al Quran Amala kulu bin Ock Fallujah, and this is the most serious act of ella yetta De Bruyne Al Quran, Allah Peruvian UK fellow How do they not ponder over these ayat in the Quran? Or has a lock been set on their hearts

00:32:19--> 00:32:31

and this is what our Misha always tell us. That if you live your life free from the De Boer, then see Allah subhanho wa Taala for it just might be that you have a lock on your heart.

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

May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all.

00:32:35--> 00:32:55

What does the W mean? The double refers to us reciting an ayah in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and benchmarking ourselves against the meaning of this ayah we ask ourselves that this ayah or these ayat which I have read, it's full of commands, where am I with regards to these commands?

00:32:57--> 00:33:00

This ayah commands towards Salah where am I with regards to my sweater.

00:33:03--> 00:33:08

This ayah warns us against certain matters. Where am I with regards to these warnings?

00:33:10--> 00:33:15

Am I a person who lives the Quran? Or am I a person that does lip service to the Quran?

00:33:17--> 00:33:20

This is the dub. This is from the double

00:33:23--> 00:33:31

LP Rahim Allah. He mentions three categories of people, three categories of people.

00:33:33--> 00:33:58

He says, and this is a follow up because we mentioned the ayah in the Quran where Allah Subhana who Allah said, a fellow at the Brunello puranam, Allah Peruvian Allah. Right, Allah says, Do not ponder over this Quran, or has a lock been set on the hearts. It says we have three types of people. The first type of person is that person who is physically alive but spiritually dead.

00:34:00--> 00:34:06

His heart beats physically, but doesn't beat spiritually.

00:34:07--> 00:34:11

Thus, this person will never benefit from any remainder.

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

And then he says that there's another group of people, and they are people who have hearts that beat physically. And they have hearts that are ready to beat spiritually. But the problem is, they have focused themselves in the wrong direction. Thus, the missing the message. So he didn't benefit them.

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

And then he said that there's a third group of people. And these are people who have hearts that beat physically as well as spiritually.

00:34:47--> 00:35:00

So he says that the first person is a blind person who cannot see and the second group is a group that has people that can see but the visit their eyesight looking in the wrong direction.

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

So they are to like those in the first category in terms of benefits.

00:35:05--> 00:35:14

And the third group of people are those who are witnesses. And remember we said we don't see things but we witness

00:35:18--> 00:35:20

It is reported that Harun Rashid

00:35:22--> 00:35:40

once he was traveling with his contingent, and the Jew came up to him and said it tequila here Allah subhanho wa Taala Thea Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when this was said to him, he got off his mouth, and he immediately frustrated

00:35:41--> 00:36:28

to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So his contingents said to him, that this was a Jew who told you to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala. Why did you act in haste? He said, Did you not hear what Allah subhanho wa Taala said? What is the theme? The pillar? pillar? Is that to build Islam for hesper, who jahannam Well, I certainly have, he said, that Have you not heard, we Allah subhanho wa Taala said, and when it is said fear Allah, He is led by arrogance to more crime. So he read this ayah and he pointed over it, and when this circumstance happened, he immediately lived the Quran. It was a part of him, and his life wasn't a life of lip service to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is a

00:36:28--> 00:36:46

concept of the double pondering, benchmarking yourself against the is that you recite, for these ayat are servants of Allah is either an evidence for us on the day of piano or an evidence against us. May Allah subhanahu wa taala make the Quran a companion for us.

00:36:47--> 00:36:51

And may Allah subhanho wa Taala make the score on evidence for us? I mean,

00:36:53--> 00:37:02

from the dobro servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam is recognizing lessons that are hidden within the meanings of the Quran.

00:37:04--> 00:37:24

Yes, we are lessons that are hidden within the meanings of the ayat in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is why you never ever become bored reading the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and pondering over it by Allah every time you read an ayah if Allah opens your heart, you will learn something new.

00:37:25--> 00:37:36

been blessed with Allah and him to teach surah Yusuf. Many times and by Allah, there is not a time we I teach it except that I learn a new lesson.

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

As many times as I teach it, I learned a new lesson. So Pamela, there are meanings in these IX, which are not apparent, but Allah opens for those people have the double.

00:37:55--> 00:37:56

Should we share some examples?

00:38:01--> 00:38:06

Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah teaches us in the Quran,

00:38:08--> 00:38:13

the manners, morals and etiquettes when we speak about Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:38:14--> 00:39:06

he teaches us this. Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the statements of Ibrahim alayhis salam, Ibrahim Alayhi Salam described Allah subhanho wa Taala and said Allah The Hala Pani for who? ideen one levy Who are you, Mooney while you're staying with morito for who is feen will levy you meet 24 Ma, you will one lead the ultimate, purely hobby at Yama Diem. This was the statements of Ibrahim alayhi salam, which Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about in the Quran, the meaning of which is Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam says, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who created me and guides me and he is the one who feeds me and gives me drink. And when I am ill, it is he who cures me and who will

00:39:06--> 00:39:23

cause me to die, and then Bring me to life. And it is he who I aspire, that he will forgive me my sins on the Day of Judgment. This is the meaning of the ayat shed. Now, there's nothing in this ayah or in these Ayah three cited which

00:39:25--> 00:39:33

clearly tells us or has a title stating the mannerisms when speaking about Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:39:34--> 00:39:59

But when we analyze this is, we take a step back, remember we said that the Buddha is taking a step back and we look at this if again, we see that Ibraheem alehissalaam says it is Allah who created me, and it is Allah who guides me and it is Allah who feeds me, and it is Allah who gives me drink. But then he says, and when I am ill, he doesn't say when Allah makes me ill

00:40:02--> 00:40:08

He says and when I am ill it is Allahu purism, not in a llama. This is

00:40:09--> 00:40:41

when we analyze this, these ayat and say Subhan Allah, how Ibrahim Alayhi Salam did not attach the attribute of him becoming sick to Allah subhanho wa Taala even though it is Allah subhanho wa Taala as decree that dictates that somebody becomes sick, but sickness is not something beloved to mankind. So he used fit in magnesium module, he used the pestle form of the verb and said when I am sick or when I become sick and didn't say when Allah makes me sick.

00:40:43--> 00:41:03

We have learned from this is to double the etiquettes of speaking about Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is how we've learned from the meanings within the law in the law. How amazing is this Quran? Let's take another example. In surah, two calf we read this weekly, we read this week.

00:41:05--> 00:41:38

We know the famous story of Musa alayhis salam, Al Qaeda. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says Musa alayhis salam to go and find Hitler, and Hitler would teach him knowledge of the unseen, teach him knowledge which Musa alayhis salam did not know. And we know that Hitler took Moosa upon a little boat and made a hole, and then Hitler went to another place and killed a particular person. And then Heather went to a third place and erected a wall

00:41:40--> 00:41:43

in a city of people who refused to offer them kindness.

00:41:44--> 00:42:28

At the end of this when Heather is explaining his actions, he says, such and such was done. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted Oh Allah subhanho wa Taala did such and such, because Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted this wall to remain erect, so it could protect the wealth of the orphans so that they could attain this. Well, it is Allah who wanted but when he talks about making a hole in this boat, he doesn't say and Allah wanted to make this whole, he said for our two and Eva, so I wanted to make a hole in it La ilaha illAllah

00:42:29--> 00:43:09

because from the outset damaging property is not something praiseworthy, correct or not. It's not something praiseworthy. Thus, he had added in his speech with Moosa regarding Allah subhanho wa Taala. And instead of saying an alarm, I wanted to make a hole in this chip. Rather, he said, and I wanted to make a hole in the ship, even though he was acting upon one upon revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is why the scholars say that according to the correct opinion, Hitler was a prophet from the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because he received washy, he received why he and why he only goes to messengers and Allah Subhana who Allah knows best. You want some more

00:43:09--> 00:43:10

examples?

00:43:11--> 00:43:12

Yes.

00:43:13--> 00:43:16

Let's look at the story of use of writing Salah.

00:43:17--> 00:43:31

In the story of use of Allah He Salam O Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us we adapt the morals, the manners and the etiquettes of hiding the faults of our fellow Muslim brothers and sisters.

00:43:32--> 00:43:37

But he doesn't do it in a clear cut idea which says hide their faults.

00:43:38--> 00:43:50

Rather, it's a lesson engraved within the ayah for those who practice the double, and those who have those who have hearts that Allah subhanho wa Taala has opened to these lessons.

00:43:51--> 00:44:11

Allah subhanho wa Taala describes a meeting between the brothers of use of Allah who salah and says that they came together and they project to kill Yusuf alayhi salam, but what happened? Someone from amongst them said let up to use don't kill you. So instead throw him into the bottom of

00:44:13--> 00:44:16

Allah subhanho wa Taala describes this person

00:44:17--> 00:44:30

by saying, Allah wa Illumina home someone from them said, someone from them said, and the LMR of 15 said that this someone was the oldest brother,

00:44:31--> 00:44:32

the oldest brother.

00:44:33--> 00:44:46

So here, the older brother didn't do his job. As an older brother, he made a grave mistake. His actions at this particular venture should have been

00:44:47--> 00:44:59

bringing about sensibility to the speech of his brothers who are plotting to kill us a violent Salah. Rather, he joined them in their plot, but didn't dissolve the matter. Right.

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

He tend to venture into a different direction and said throw him into the bottom of a well. So here he didn't play his role as a bigger brother. Thus Allah subhanho wa Taala hides him and says parlor illumine home someone said, Allah subhanho wa Taala is teaching us that Allah Buddha is that you will gela hides the faults of people. And if this is the way of Allah in order about your way in my way, and evidence to this is that Allah subhanho wa Taala towards the end of the story, when they were gathered in Egypt, after Binyamin was taken captive by use of Allah His salah and after these brothers to cake person, by Allah to their father that they will not return except with Vinnie Amin.

00:45:47--> 00:45:57

And the brothers were planning to go back here the big brother played his role and he took a stance and he held them back and said lm l mo and

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

La commode.

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

Right, he tells them that hold on a second. Do you not remember that you've taken an oath?

00:46:08--> 00:46:10

How can you go back empty handed.

00:46:11--> 00:46:36

So here he played his role. Thus Allah subhanho wa Taala said Allah Kabira home lm level and Ahava la como la la ilaha illa Allah, Allah makes him manifest here and says the oldest brother said, Here he played his role. Thus Allah mentioned him but earlier on he didn't. Thus Allah subhanho wa Taala kept him hidden.

00:46:38--> 00:47:24

We all must have Hannah who Allah grant us the understanding. This is amazing, right? Every ayah in the Quran has this. Every ayah in the Quran has this but for those who ponder, and for those who deliberate over the ayah in the Quran, we learn just as a quick example of something that's popped up in my mind from a lesson that I learned reading surah Yusuf once in an aircraft to Han Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us how he values and honors the people of the heat. The highest form of the heat you possess, Allah subhanho wa Taala values you in a higher and greater way. Allah subhanho wa Taala in Surah Yusuf, he says, or he mentioned the statement of the Aqua Valley Salam

00:47:24--> 00:47:31

Yaqoob Allah He Salam tells his son worker Li Kj Toby Cora buco Are you

00:47:34--> 00:47:40

winning the war are you Tim Mooney Mehta who is a co op.

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

Eddie aku bad karma.

00:47:49--> 00:47:50

Karma.

00:47:52--> 00:48:42

Boy coming Babu Evo Hema is happy. La ilaha illAllah yaku vida he Salam tells us that the difficulties you face is Allah subhanho wa Taala his way of completing his favor upon you, just like he completed his favor upon your grandfather's who Ibrahima what is happening. Now when I read this, I thought to myself, so panela is hack was uses grandfather, his hack was used his grandfather Ibrahim was the great grandfather because he was used to even Yaqoob Jacobi but his half is half even Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam. So I thought to myself, Subhan Allah, how come Allah subhanho wa Taala has mentioned Ibrahim before

00:48:43--> 00:48:50

when it was correct to mention his half before Ibrahim, because he's the closest grandparent to use of Valley Salaam.

00:48:52--> 00:49:34

And in researching this, lo and behold, you find the statements of the erla that this is a lesson for those who ponder of how Allah subhanho wa Taala honors the people of tawheed and those who have the highest form of tawheed they received the first mention and we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala loved the tawheed of Brahim alayhi salatu was Salam. O Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us with an agenda. I mean, so these are lessons of the who servants of Allah in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, before we leave this gathering, we must discuss two quick points. As I said yesterday, if we don't complete these talks, it becomes a point of entertainment. And we're not here to become

00:49:34--> 00:49:46

entertained, we have come to become informed, right? That's why I was discussing with some people yesterday I said you should make it a point sometimes of marketing the title of the talk and not the speaker.

00:49:48--> 00:49:52

But they said so panela we tried that once but only 50 people came.

00:49:53--> 00:49:58

And another time we just marketed the name of the speaker without the title and 1000s of people came

00:49:59--> 00:50:00

and this is a

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

Killer. I said it yesterday it's in the recording, but let me say it again for those who are not going to watch the recording, this is a, this is a problem, this channel of that needs to be addressed. And we need to ponder over it and the people of our current the dumper as well. We need to nurture the Ummah to become attached to the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam are not personalities, this is not Hollywood and Bollywood and, and and, and so on and so forth. This is not what it is. It is not a speaker who gives value to the message. It's the message that he has that gave value to him. And that is why he was called to speak.

00:50:39--> 00:51:19

But what does this mean? It means respect the speaker for the knowledge that Allah gave him but don't be excessive. Don't be excessive, when you raise them to ranks of personalities, and it becomes a period of entertainment for you May Allah protect us just like those who disbelieved go to the cinemas for entertainment on the weekend. And the whole exercise becomes an exercise void of any rewards from Allah subhanho wa Taala that you might stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of piano and say I spent my weekend at a talk, learning from the inheritance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, only to be told that we have lived me Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:51:19--> 00:51:32

protectors, rather we went to become entertained. Now most of what Allah protect us, and for the organizers of events, Take heed, because your actions nurture the upcoming oma.

00:51:34--> 00:51:47

And we don't know what will be the plight of our children after us we Allah subhanho wa Taala protect them from harm. I mean, before we end this talk, two methods, the first method that needs to be discussed, is to see and

00:51:48--> 00:51:59

this is a question I've been asked many times many people say but Subhanallah we have been warned against speaking about the Quran without knowledge. So how can we practice the double when we don't have knowledge about the Quran?

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

And yes, your reservation is correct. We know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught us that those who explain the Quran through guesswork, they are sinful even if they are correct, even if they are correct.

00:52:15--> 00:52:29

So somebody asked you something and you explained it from your thoughts. Even if you are right, you are sinful. This means we need to have great diligence with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah great diligence. And this is clear.

00:52:31--> 00:53:14

And to answer your question, we need to understand that there's a difference between tafsir and tetherpro. tafsir is the exegesis of the Quran the explanation of the Quran, understanding the Quran as taught to us by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as he taught his companions and as they relate to us, this is Tafseer and for you to observe the De Boer, you have to have understood the ayah with its techseen the who is a stage that comes after tipsy. Thus there's no contradiction in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala no one should say that how can Allah tell us that our hearts are locked if we don't practice the De Boer, but we've been warned against speaking about the book of

00:53:14--> 00:53:32

Allah subhanho wa Taala. without knowledge, there's no contradiction that the book is one phenomenon, and Tafseer is another science all together. Before you can start the formula and process of the book you have to understand the idea as it's intended

00:53:33--> 00:53:47

to who starts after Tafseer and Alhamdulillah. Allah has blessed communities with scholars with students of knowledge and those who can be at your service in explaining to you the meaning of if so use them and then when change your journey of the double.

00:53:49--> 00:54:04

The next point we have to discuss is what are those reasons that caused us to be from amongst the material that cause us to be from amongst those that have been prevented from understanding the deeper meanings in the poem.

00:54:06--> 00:54:10

There are many, but I'll share with you a few. I'll share with you a few.

00:54:13--> 00:54:18

The first which may apply to us is the improper recitation of the Quran.

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

And an improper recitation entails a few aspects number one, besides doing it without the correct Mahara number two reciting it without the correct number three, reciting it was an absent heart. And this happens to us many times someone's reciting the Quran, the mobile phone rings and they stop and they answer the call immediately. This is this is better to do with the Quran. How is the Quran going to serve you and be a means of guidance for you when you don't have the respect to give it its due to Hannah law? Right.

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

When we eat, we don't answer the court. Some of us when we eat, we still answer the call. But when we

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

We don't answer the call but when we read the Quran we are quick to answer this is disrespecting the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala opens for us based on how much we open to the Quran, the value of our zoo, the value of our sitting, understanding exactly what we reading. This is column Allah, this is the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:55:24--> 00:55:53

From the factors that render us void, when it comes towards these concepts of the web and understanding lessons, is a person reading the Quran who has a heart that is filled with sicknesses of the heart, jealousy, hatred, envy, malice, and so on and so forth. Allah subhanho wa Taala does not place that which is pure in a filthy place. If your heart is filthy, nothing pure is going to settle.

00:55:56--> 00:56:42

From the reasons that prevent us all servants of Allah is being sinful. Sins prevent us from achieving our capacities and achieving our potentials. And that is why the seller the pious predecessors before us, went to great lengths in explaining to us the power of St. Paul, by Allah you can be going through a calamity. And what sincere is the heart Allah subhanho wa Taala opens this calamity for you and you see periods of ease. Check for Islam Ibn taymiyyah Rahim Allah He himself says that I would be presented with a question. And the answer would elude me except that I would sit and in the most humble home seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And within

00:56:42--> 00:56:44

moments, Allah subhanho wa Taala opens

00:56:46--> 00:57:11

up this corner if you read their writings, they didn't have libraries like us. Today we have libraries and we research and we we copy from this place and put it here and reference our information. These were scholars who wrote from their heads we know Mr. Masako CL Hana v. He wrote an absorb whilst he was sitting at the bottom of a well they threw him into the bottom of a well to jail him and absorb which is about 30 volumes, if not more, depending on the print was done while he

00:57:13--> 00:57:59

dictated the notes to his students on top of the well. Where did Where did he have this ability to remember this? This is from a pure heart and lack of sin. And that is why remember share theory and what will make you understand who was a member of Shafi Eman Michelle fury as some of the earlier my say was a man if you read a page here to block the other page so that he didn't memorize it by mistake. This Imam Shafi Rahim Allah He says Shaco to Allah wa t into I have been for Photoshop danila Tolkien mousy barany Manu, hula hula, you tell him I'm a chef. He says I complained to my teacher work here about my weak memory. Now in her La ilaha illAllah weak memory, he's complaining

00:57:59--> 00:58:04

to his teacher. So what this is teacher telling for Russia, Danny in Turkey.

00:58:05--> 00:58:09

He advised me towards staying away from sin

00:58:10--> 00:58:22

barany and neuron and he told me that knowledge is light while Ooh la la laughs and the light of Allah subhanho wa Taala does not descend upon a sinner.

00:58:23--> 00:58:26

Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. And

00:58:31--> 00:58:44

so these are some of the factors that render us void We ask Allah subhana wa Taala his protection from it. And last but not least, as a resolution to this talk, I encourage one in oil towards

00:58:45--> 00:58:52

ensuring the progression of gurus related to the double Quran in our societies

00:58:53--> 00:59:28

towards a double Quran in our societies. I know I told you at the beginning that this topic is a strange one, but something we used to. And it's not going to free flow like the topics we used to end those Eman boosting talks. But for me, this is the mind boosting understanding the reality of Allah subhanho wa Taala his book it is and that is why when they shared the topics I asked permission from Connor to edit a topic and at least include this topic of difficult and taboo because today many of us lack understanding of the importance of this topic. And some of us lack the presence of this topic. If we count the amount of gurus present around we find gurus pertaining to,

00:59:29--> 01:00:00

and gurus pertaining to Heidi Andrews pertaining to arcade and this is all good, but count how many gurus are dedicated towards the serious study of the ayat in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala we need these lessons of servants of Allah. And as a resolution to this talk. I asked for an hour and I asked this community here and all those watching at home in your own communities. I asked you all to also ensure that you try your best to pave the way towards the introduction of these gurus. We have lots of Hannah who attalla facilities

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

For us, and to everyone here, I encourage you, and I implore you, that just as you have

01:00:08--> 01:00:37

a relationship, which involves reciting the Quran, with the Quran, and the relationship which involves memorizing the Quran, with the Quran, and the relationship which involves you listening to the Quran, I implore you to start a new relationship with the Quran. And this is the relationship of the double, take one ayah or half an ayah and get someone from the people of knowledge to explain it to you, and then sit and spend hours pondering over it.

01:00:39--> 01:00:52

It says that Urban hubub robiola who he spent 12 years just memorizing Surah tillbaka 12 years today Mashallah we have memorized the Quran in one month, right over

01:00:53--> 01:01:39

12 years memorizing Sudoku Bukhara and it is said that he took that long because he wanted or he spent time pondering over every I memorized, pondering over it, and then putting those lessons into practice swallowing it, digesting it, making that I a part and parcel of himself and then he moved on to the next. This is what Allah subhanho wa Taala has made easy for me to share with you all. I love you all for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Eddie mistake, said this from myself and shame upon and everything correctly from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he is perfect. Once again, I thank you for your attendance. I thank you for your attentiveness as well. And

01:01:41--> 01:01:58

I asked him lots of Hannah who attalla t Unitas in general in the same way he has united us here today to Han Allah who will be heavily Hispanic and Maha morbihan, deca Masha Allah Allah Allah and Mr. Furukawa to Lake wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad quite early on big marine. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
