paragraph one find
a love magnet to become reliant on
wanting to live smart.
My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, my dear mothers and fathers in Santa Monica.
All praises belong to a lot of cannibals with Allah. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala
we seek Allah subhana wa assistance and we seek the guidance of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evils of our souls and the adverse consequences of our deeds. Whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decreased guidance upon the man can misguide that person and whomsoever Allah subhana wa tada teepees misguidance upon them can guide him and peace and salutations be upon the land from the library.
My dear brothers and sisters first and foremost, I'd like to extend a heartwarming thanks to
the Muslims of High Wycombe for this particular invite
it's been a number of years that I have been requested to visit you or a desire of mine personally to come visit you because believe it or not, in reality we have some
Mashallah wonderful brothers who hail from High Wycombe. In fact, in the code, I see some familiar faces Mashallah that I have met in VR. So I thank you for the invite, and ask for most of
the case. I'd also like to extend a thanks to those that came from outside of High Wycombe. I see some faces that I know
actually come from other cities like for example, the city of bath,
as well as our brothers that are coming from South London asked
to make this a gathering that is a good word and follows it asks us
to make us a gathering that is forgiven upon our departure and asked Allah subhana wa tada together us in Japan, in the same way that he has gathered us here today.
Our DMM made matters easy for myself because he resigned to be a part that I will not resign them I was planning on recycling
and recycling them for us.
Except from him and except from us.
The topic for today, as has been announced,
is a topic
And assuming that topic was designed when I was in Birmingham a few days ago,
they chose a topic that stemmed from the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the topic is online for your viewing. And we shall I may refer to it because in the qualities or from the qualities of the believers and almost had a word keratocytes for us, in this particular surah.
From those qualities are that which I did discuss in that particular talk. So, we have the topic and I think it's appropriate that I share with you label production that I shared with them in Birmingham, and that is that we need to appreciate these topics because when we discuss these sporadic topics in this form, they're basically what we're doing is kicking off a new dimension with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because the Quran has rights, the provider has rights and in fact, we will see in this particular surah
in the is that we hope to share from the outset I will say that we will not be able to cover all the qualities of the servants of Allah, some kind of attack that but I was terrible at data sight, these are
the qualities of the believers with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, this book
has rights that we have to look after. And I have discussed these rights in detail. So from them is the fact that we recite the Quran from them is the fact that we memorize the Quran from those rights is the fact that we listen to the Quran and there are other rights above these such as reciting the Quran in the manner that it deserves to be recited, but then we have a right that is not so common in society today. In fact,
if we compare the lessons that would actually govern us,
bringing into presence this particular right, or if we look at the number of lessons, we find that they are
much fewer than the lessons related to other established sciences such as Antarctica and so on and so forth. And this dimension is the dimension of
dimension of this concept of having a relationship with the Quran whereby you ponder over the meanings that exists within the if you ponder over the meanings that exists within the if so when you read the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala you read an ayah and it has an apparent meaning and with your sincerity and your devout worship of Allah subhana wa tada if you spend time deliberate, right and deliberating is to reflect time and time again over something. Right. This is the concept of deliberate when Allah subhana wa, tada commands us to reflect with regards to that which is not the Quran such as the creation of everything around us, Allah subhana wa Jalla uses the word
refers to the concept of thinking again and again and again about something until
we either can use to see something stops becoming a mere sight. And rather, it starts witnessing things
that you used to hear things stops becoming a mere hearing exercise, rather, it becomes an exercise of listening, and the heart that you used to know something stops becoming a mere activity of learning. Rather, it becomes an activity of learning plus understanding, right, there is a difference between these variables, right? There's a difference between seeing something and witnessing it. There's a difference between hearing something and listening to it. There's a difference between knowing something and understanding it. And this is something which you might have heard me say time and time again, in other talks that today,
I'm not going to be stereotype here, I'm not going to be a stereotype and say all the modalities but I would say to a large extent, we find that our children are being educated in our institutions, and even in our homes by ourselves, we almost forget, forgive us, we teach that which is considered the inheritance of harmony, our beloved son of a love it was seldom, and that which is considered the teachings of the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we share these lessons with our children the same way that science might be imparted, or mathematics might be imparted. We teach it in a way that it becomes a process of data collection, rather than a process of Tobia and internalization. And
there has to be a difference. We can teach mathematics and then teach them the same way we teach mathematics whereby people came with their notepads, they jotted down notes that will come to the lab, they collected data. That will be a futile exercise. We've lost the sermon.
We will also be
The essence because if you teach in the words of Allah subhanho, wa Taala, it has to have an effect on the heart that is receiving these words. And if you're teaching the inheritance of somebody tabula rasa which was given to him by Allah,
Allah had an assignment. And when a new lead What
if you are teaching somebody, something that came from this divine source, then automatically it has to happen in a way that the person receiving it develops from it, there's tangible benefits in the person listening to this.
So this is where the book comes in, and almost a parable. It's that time and time again commands us to this because the come to the lab, we are different from the rest of the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala, in that Allah subhana wa Taala gave us intent, a brain and I want to kind of what
instructs this intellect when he says alpha, alpha,
alpha, alpha come
with intellect when he, when he cites a similitude, he will say Indeed, it is a sign of those of understand. Now, since we're talking about understanding, let us see what Allah Subhana Allah says about what does Allah subhana wa, say about?
Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us that this is
the main purpose behind revelation was that that was the
this was the essence behind the revelation of the book of Allah. So kind of who what, and you may have heard this many, many times, you may have heard from myself, and definitely from many of the IMA, is where Allah subhanho wa Taala says that this is kita Boo.
says that this is a blessing book, he told me he will send him a blessing Book which We have revealed to you Oh Mohamed,
he has done so that they can ponder over it is over it's and this is the correct translation of the translation of Isaiah is we don't say this, because an AI is more dense, then our common understanding of reverse in the English language. Right? It's a verse plus so many other things. So Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us that the essence behind the revelation of the Quran is so that we can ponder over these if and so that those of understanding will remember.
We have to make us understand. So we need to ensure that we are not like the people before us.
about them coming home,
in there, and then that from them were people that knew nothing about the book except to recycle this document, the show can show kind of says here refers to those who just read without understanding without growing and developing themselves from the recitation of the book of Allah to handle what can we do to ensure that we don't fall into the trap of those before us. And it will tie him when he explains we are in
our era speaks about
in the demo had an Majora that indeed by people have abandoned him.
When he explains this abandonment, he cites that from abandoning the four iron is leaving this practice of leaving this practice on.
So we seek
forgiveness for our weaknesses within this book. And we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to inspire a better association with his book for Indeed, there is no greater science to study the sciences bleeds into the Quran. In fact, Greek scholars like to contain me and others even though they excel in the sciences, and so on and so forth. They very clearly said statements that showed the regret of not having the ability to spend their life studying only the Panama this for an even if we gave it a lifetime of service, we would not have done justice to these two more to learn from it. So try this concept of the Wi Fi before we can
discuss is if there might be a common question in your mind. And this is something which
I've been asked several times when I have electronic deductible. Some people say that we know that the scholars say that a person who speaks about the poor and
without knowledge, then
he is extremely sinful. Or he should pick his place in the fire, and so on and so forth. And this is true. This is true, because we know that if you speak about the poor and without knowledge, then you are sinful, even if you correct even if you have a lucky guess, then you are still sin? Because it is not an entity that we take chances with.
But to answer that, and obviously the question is, isn't the contradiction that in one face, we are being commanded to Dakota and in the other instance, we are being warned against speaking about without knowledge? And to answer that question,
very simply, first and foremost, there is no contradiction. There is no contradiction, because the shediac came from one source, it came from one source. So it is impossible for something to come from one perfect source to contradict each other. If we feel that there's a contradiction, then that contradiction exists in our own minds. And we eat research a bit more and ponder a bit more and the
the presence of this feeling that there's a contradiction will be lifted in Sharma so there's no contradiction, because what we have been warned against is doing see of the poor without money, and the seal is not a double seal is a phase that comes before that.
Right? So you must read the ayah. And you must understand the eye in light of the explanations of the of the seal. And once you have gained that knowledge, now comes your role to ponder over it. And maybe we have time, we will share some lessons that we can derive from the Quran purely from the depth of meaning the ayah in the Quran, and we the lesson that we derive from it might not be so apparent. All right, we
should be good now. What should we do later?
Now, I actually shared this the reason why I'm only saying Should we do it now is because I shared with the brothers in Birmingham. The topic in Birmingham was what we'll do in a poll, what we'll do is set up and heavy based on the
data that speaks about the people agenda in Surah. Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, after you mentioned the people agenda and the gifts that Allah will give them, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that these people were guided to a goodly speech and a good meeting when they lived in this country. So that goodly speech that they have benefited them in the ACA and allow them to be from the people.
Gentlemen, so the topic ended up being about the time and one of the lessons I shared with them is that this
measures us in how we speak about our last panel.
How we speak about our last panel was how
if we look in,
if we look at the statement of
Salah when he speaks about Allah subhanho wa Taala he says Allah subhana wa Jalla creates life and he causes death. And Allah subhana wa Taala feeds and Allah subhanho wa Taala, quenches thirst. And then when he talks about sickness, he doesn't say what kind of what makes me sick, he cures rather he says what I become sick Allah
once before he saying and Allah created me and Allah will give me death and Allah feeds me and a lot quenches me but when I become sick a lot
of the sudden has he changed his speech.
Right? Because we know sickness is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. But is sickness something that you and I praise for something we make dua for protection from
Is it something you ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for or is it something that will ask Allah subhanho wa Taala protection from what is protection from so this is
the even though Yes, Allah subhana wa has decreed is the final say with regards to who becomes sick and who remains healthy. But when I speak about sickness and Allah subhana wa Jalla was correct. And then I rather say when I become sick when I'm made sick, rather than say when
this comes from, from pondering over this I will look into little cat
When he is
about the reasons why he punctured a hole in the ship, and the reason why he mended the wall in the city of those that did not honor them, they went to a city because he didn't want to die. And there was a wall that was about to fall and make this wall up practice said, Why didn't you take from them some fee for the service that you did, especially since they do not even want us? Right? So freedom says, As for the wall,
there was wealth that this world was protecting, and your Lord wanted to protect it and tell the recipients of that wealth were able to attend and pay attention to the fact that he said your Lord. All
right. But when he tells me
about why he punctured a hole in the boat, he doesn't say your Lord wants to damage the boat. Rather, he says for up to an amoeba. And I wanted to puncture a hole in this book,
to protect this boat from being usurped by the oppressor that was usurping boats.
So why in one instance in one instance when he was definitely getting instruction from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is why some of them after since he was a prophet, because he seemed like this was one that he received. Right? So why on earth in one instance, he say I wanted to puncture the boat when he was receiving water from a line a lot instructed him to do.
But when he mended the world, he attributes it to Allah subhanho wa Taala guarantee that you're not wanting to protect.
This is from telco you ask yourself why.
Right, is puncturing somebody praiseworthy or not praiseworthy from the outset, to people who don't have money from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So praise this, what did he do? He attributes the act of punching a hole in the ship himself.
This is underpinned speech with our last panel.
In any case, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to revive this concept of the devil in our homes, in our communities and come to learn. The communities especially in this country are blessed with
honorable students of knowledge and aroma and people that definitely have the abilities to learn from the Giants before us. And those that did the grunt work for us everything I told you also for myself, it was mentioned before us, and they have the ability to read the words and share it with you want
to open those channels for us. Indeed, Allah subhanho wa Taala is upon
acceptance of Allah, no children of Adam,
in his area in soloqueue, for fun, I'm also cannibal attire that takes time, to mention the quality of the battle rush man. And it's very interesting that Allah subhanho wa Taala cited them as descendants of a rough man, he could have said in sermons of Allah
what the Bible was
But he said, leave out the rough man, the surface of our rock man. So from the outset, this gives us a stream of hope, that we are servants of the Most messy,
the servants have the most messy
and this should teach us that yes, you are about to read
about the qualities and characteristics
of the true believers of Allah. And once you read them, and you start benchmarking yourself against these qualities, and you might feel that so Pamela I am far from being a true believer. Once this understanding becomes apparent, don't become despondent. Don't become despondent, because these really bad are
they are the bad of our recommend the most forgiving the most mess. So don't lose hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala Rada making firm intention from not to change yourself for the better to be like those that have led to
That's one point. The second point as the River State, Allah subhanho wa Taala assigned to these amazing individuals as the man, the servants of a rough man.
And they will never say we learn from this, that these amazing individuals are free from sin.
They will not free
from Allah subhanho, China rather call them the servants of man to teach us that they are human beings and we're human beings like yourself and they send as well in a local game.
That's the first clause that I want you want to comprehend. Before we dive into the characteristics of
the qualities of the service.
First and foremost, when you see the qualities and you feel you don't have it, don't feel disappointment, feel rejuvenated, that it is Allah subhanho wa Taala as mercy that Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen you to hear these words when you find yourself in and around the law, we are at the
same time and time again, that if Allah subhanho wa Taala was good for you, he opens the doors for you to achieve that. He puts that opportunity in your path that is a means of
innovation in your life. Right. So thank Allah subhanho wa Taala don't become despondent, rather become revived, rather become revived. For these are the servants of our man, the most forgiving, the Most Merciful, as long as your breathing levels open.
And inshallah we'll discuss this concept of mercy and Toba and so on. And so insha Allah subhanho wa Taala.
The other aspect, as I said, is don't feel that we speaking about angels, and don't feel that we speaking about profits that are free from sin. We speaking about people who said, and Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us if we ponder over the fact that he said they are a bad man. And he didn't say that because he chose to attach this way or this none of the bad, which is MOBA. And he chose not to be one of his most.
So these people will human beings like ourselves, they faltered, they made mistakes, and stew, Allah subhana wa tada is pleased with them, and proud of them and forgetting their mistakes and decides for us their qualities. Now, it's very important that these talks of these natures that actually encompass these particular topics are discussed, especially to them. And the reason for that is,
today, we are experiencing a recession in terms of our abilities to propagate.
Right? I can call it recession. It's a common word. Right? Right. recession, economics refers to so many dips in consecutive quarters, right, we are also experiencing a recession because we haven't managed to pull ourselves to the levels that we used to in terms of our own time. Right. And a lot of pattern with that taala will test and this life is nothing but a test. And also, again, we shouldn't become despondent, rather, we should become rejuvenated and ready for the challenge. As Allah subhana wa apparent essays in sudo, to move left.
think that this is bad for you, it's good for you. Right, it's good for you. Because now with this difficulty, you have a new way to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala you have a new way to worship Allah subhana wa Tada. And what is clear, and this is something I shared with the brothers in less space today, that even
those who are seeking knowledge we have this disconnect in that knowledge is being shared, but is not being shared and knowledge without any It was a very dangerous phase in the life of
