My dear brothers and sisters in Islam Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh it all praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala we praise Him, we seek his assistance and we seek His forgiveness and we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evil of our souls and the adverse consequences of our deeds. wampserver Allah subhanho wa Taala decreased guidance upon the man can misguide him and will serve Allah subhanho wa Taala decrease misguidance upon the man can guide him and peace and salutations be upon the final messenger Muhammad Ali Abdullah Saleh Allahu Allah He was a lamp. I
bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship besides one Allah and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is His Messenger. Brothers and sisters in Islam welcome this 11th of April 2015 15 raava, to our sixth sixth
session in the series, Mutasa, that method or a summary of the book titled provisions for the hereafter. This lesson six is counted as six after our introductory session that we had Pamela the weeks to go by fast and Friday appears and then disappears and then reappears.
You know, before we can even begin missing Friday re, I really felt this particular week just was Friday to Friday, as if it was Friday, and the next day was Friday. I love them, Stan. And this is from the sense of PM, my dear brothers and sisters went through the loss of a loved while he was alive describes as a sign from the signs of gamma, this process of coming together of tech yet the power of zoom and the coming together of time.
And it doesn't mean that we will have less than 24 hours in a day. No, we still have 24 hours in a day, it doesn't mean that we'll have less than seven days in a week. We'll still have seven days in a week, but
blessings will be removed from time this is what our scholars have have taught us that from the signs of the hour, his blessings being removed from time where you just stop feeling the minutes and the seconds. Right.
And it's like we see with money today, right where a long time ago perhaps $100 or 100. Durham's or 100, reals
would go a long way and today's handler you enter the market and and you know it within your first five minutes 100 is spent long Stan so this is a from the signs of blessings being removed. And we really need to take the means of gaining blessings into our lives from them is what we discussed during our earlier sessions the importance of saying Bismillah before we do anything starting the day with Bismillah this from the means of Baraka and bringing back blessings into our our day and blessings into our time and wealth from the means of Baraka and blessings coming into our day and time is starting the day early. Right. As I explained to you earlier the Prophet sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam said Budi kaleo McAfee buku Ria
that bless it is my is my nation is my own man in the earliness. Right? Because Allah has put blessings.
You know, in that time of Niger and straight after fudger, this Baraka in it, there's blessings in it, the best time to memorize the Quran. And even you know, when you rest, the most peaceful rest that you have, you will experience and Allah knows best.
is is is after fudger for those who have a habit of sleeping off to function, and I've heard this from many a person from the means also of bringing blessings into our lives is to maintain the bonds of kinship.
sola, sola Allahu Allahu wa sallam said in a hadith which is found in the soudan books of Hadith, and is a hadith which is acceptable, he said, some Allahu alayhi wa sallam that
wants to have the
the life lengthened, the life lengthened, then they should,
they should maintain the bonds of kinship and the actual wording of the habitus. Men have better use of Allahu philosphy Allah who he
for the acyl rahima that the one who wishes to have abundance in his in his
sustenance, right. And once you have abundance in his life, then or a longer life that he should maintain the bonds of kinship, so panela you know, so a lot of
in many cases we belittle, looking after family ties the bonds of kinship. But in reality, Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed great blessings in our life,
if we actually looked after those particular bonds, so looking after looking after those bonds, brings up our Baraka, it's a means of, you know, our 100
reals, or dollars, or dear hams or whatever unit of currency we use, you know, being with us as if it's 500 being with us as if it's 600. It's a means for us towards having our one minute in our day, you know, being like as if it's been an hour or half an hour or 45 minutes, what do we need of this? We must have had who Allah protect us I actually tweeted this on on Thursday, because you know, it was something that struck a nerve with me the fact that it is already Friday, I, I could actually remember the words of the hubby from the previous Friday.
And Friday was already coming. And yes, we must always remember what our people or what the Imam at the time of Joomla tells us. But I'm saying, you know, I actually remembered the wordings the sentences, you know, the way it was said the emotions.
It was strikingly and vividly clear. And here we have the next thing I'm sure many of you, you feel like this. And that's why I'm, I'm actually just touching on it. So so many brothers and sisters that I love brings back Baraka in our lives. Indeed, life is short, and ask Allah to grant us a little cuddle. Indeed, we are in serious need of,
you know, catching this particular night that this night, which is better than 1000 months, especially when our weeks disappear, like how they have, and we barely can remember, our deeds are lucky, we can barely remember our deeds of that weekend. And whether, you know, that week was was better than the week before. This is how fast it's going. Mr.
Brothers, this is also in terms of the start of the sixth lesson, we spoke in our last session about nurture versus nature and the whole concept of the fitrah. And interestingly enough, this was asked and and even more interestingly enough, I actually had a discussion with
the Zed team
just a couple of days ago, about fitrah. So in answer to the question that was asked me, Allah bless you all, and it's quite good. If you use the forums, by the way, I just want to remind you all towards the desired forums that have been created for your benefit and the benefit of everyone on the group.
Please use it ask your questions there. So at least When the answer comes about, then it's best benefit. It's not you know, an answer that goes specific to one person, at least everyone else in the group
can actually get the answer. And also what we are going to do in sha Allah to to get the groups moving a bit is share topics of discussion in sha Allah. So he Sham will be posting
a topic of discussion for us to discuss a sham, if you want to stick the question on the whiteboard. Now, please go ahead. But nonetheless, we spoke about nature versus nature. And, you know, we spoke about two schools of thought with regards to this the School of the scientist and the school of the philosophies. And we said, as Muslims, we we really don't
agree totally with what the scientists say, nor do we agree totally with what the philosophers say, rather, we take a middle ground and we say that, yes, you know, our nature as well as our nature or the elements of these two entities
do have a part to play in in terms of our progress in terms of development in terms of our intellectual progress, our mental maturity,
in terms of our understanding of life, and in even in terms of our physical growth.
But what we do say as Muslims is that we are truly a result from the outset of our natural disposition. And the nature versus nature argument is that argument that definitely pollutes the purity of the fitrah of the natural disposition. So we by default, are products of our fitter Muslims and non Muslims alike. But yes, the nature versus nurture argument does have the ability to pollute the fitrah. And when that happens, then we can end up becoming products of either nature or nature and I think this is
a middle of discussion. I think this is the middle way and and this is the only way to look at it. And this is, or this conforms at our levels best to the Quranic narrative.
So, yes, nature, nature does affect us. But by default, we're not a product of it. We are a product of our fitrah and natural disposition which Allah subhanho wa Taala has made pure and given to us as a beacon of guidance as a beacon of guidance and this is clear, with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lived amidst a people that were or amidst a nurture, if we can call it that, that really was not conducive, right? They were people that put
their actual rationale in front of Revelation, there were people that were slaves to the norms. In fact, even though they quote unquote, put direction and in front of Revelation, they had a very weak rationale really,
especially given some of the norms that we find at the time of jelly and that is why it is rightly called Jamelia ignorance. You know, so even though you're calling yourself or deeming yourself to be a person of rational but in reality,
you're a person of ignorance and this is who those people were before. Allah subhanho wa Taala sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the message
of Allah Allah He was a lamb was a participator. And yes, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was even more special and protected because his chest was opened on more than one occasion. And as I was called to say, Allah subhanho wa Taala removed that which would make him prone to being affected by
you know, circumstance being affected by the narrative. Right? So he was special in that regard. But nonetheless, even when we go to his best friend, Abubakar robiola, horn, Baccarat, viola one was definitely guided by Allah before Islam, but he never had his chest opened. But he definitely enjoyed a guidance from a lot because the books of sera
mentioned that Abubakar gamma one was also not from amongst those that, you know, drank alcohol and sort of
engrossed himself in the evil ways of the people of Jerry Lee. So this is the discussion about our filter, about our natural disposition. It's pure by default. And then by the software that we load, if I can use an IP analogy, we have the ability to corrupt the data, we have the ability to corrupt the data and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows this better than we know it. And thus Allah subhanho wa Taala said profits and reduce books to bring back this whole concept of perspective, right. And when we talk about perspective, or what is considered perspective, then we say, you know, perspective is that which the natural disposition
or was created upon that is perspective. And Allah sent the prophets and revealed books, the mvidmr Salatu was salam, and review books to help us re attach and re align ourselves with our faith or bring about the necessary recalibration that needed in our lives. So lessons like this help, reading the Quran helps going through the Syrah helps attending the circles of knowledge help, because yes, the profits are you know, or the, the concept of prophethood has come to an end, but the legacy has not, the legacy has not, the legacy has been transferred to the home of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the the dilemma they are now carrying on the roles of the prophets and they, in their
cycles of knowledge are those elements that you and I require to reconnect with our natural disposition. Now, she upon interestingly enough, when Allah subhanho wa Taala, removed him from Paradise and kicked him out of the heavens, he made the progress to Allah subhanho wa Taala, to take us astray. And
he in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that she upon has made a promise to make us change,
the Hulk of Allah, the creation of Allah. Now, obviously, in terms of the statement, our scholars tell us that it's general it intends any change to the help of Allah, or any change to the creation of Allah. And that is why this ayah is used a lot in the discussion pertaining to plastic surgery. Right? And
what human beings now,
you know, spend a lot of money on doing and in fact, it's become a great industry, the, the plastic surgery in the industry, right, and that is this whole concept of changing our bodily features. For females, you know, they change the bodily parts and try and
create an image that perhaps they will not upon prior. Yes, sometimes the image they tried to create is that which they were upon prior but their bodies might
have changed due to pregnancy or and so on and so forth. But in most cases now, it's just become a case where people don't like the way Allah created
a lot of Stan right. So, they they enter this, they they take sort of guidance from this industry and start changing the looks and so on and so forth. But this is not the discussion is the point of references the eye that the eye is general and the scholars who discuss the the rulings, the rulings pertaining to implants and and all these copies, if I can call it that, that entails changing the body, then the scholars use this as an idea to prove that one is not allowed to do so, why because, in general, this ayah talks about shavon promising to change the hull of a lie and Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't permit that, but coming also to the natural disposition and this is from something
which Allah subhanho wa Taala created and in fact created upon and changing the hunt of Allah entails changing this natural disposition. And this is what she upon attacks, Shabbat attacks, the
Shabbat attacks the fidra. Think about it, you know, why would someone not be happy about the way Allah created them,
and prefer to make changes based on human perception. And this is what happens if we let's just continue the narrative of plastic surgery, right? If you go to a doctor, what's going to happen? The doctor is going to tell you, well, we can do this to you and we can do that to you and we can do you know, we can do an IP here and attack here and so on and so forth. This is what will happen. How is it that a person feels more comfortable putting their trust in the design of a human being who Allah created? who is who depends on Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right, they feel confident, leaving their design in the hands of this person's mind and perception. And they feel uncomfortable leaving it
upon the way that Allah subhanho wa Taala, the creator of everyone in creation has created it. How does that happen? Right, how does this happen? This can only happen when the natural disposition changes, when the hope of law changes when he believes SharePoint is successful in changing the health of Allah, successful in polluting the natural disposition. This is what he attacks. And this is what he does, for all reasons. For, for for his benefit in the dunya. And for his benefit in terms of his promise to Allah with regards to he after, with regards to him taking the message that Allah has created to the hellfire. So he works on fitrah because when he works on fitrah, then
what's going to happen is, you and I are going to start questioning the unquestionable. That's what's going to happen. All of a sudden things which we would never dream of questioning now become plausible to question. Revelation. For example, the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam For example, we start questioning, you know why we start questioning how Allah subhanho wa Taala has commanded society to be in an ideal way. We start questioning modesty. We start questioning the hijab, we start questioning the Presence of Allah even to Pamela this is what he gets to. We start questioning even our acts of worship. I've come across young, budding youth who question Wazoo and
cannot understand why it is legislated to make Gulu if somebody passes wind May Allah Allah you all these are real discussions, my dear brothers and sisters and I promise not to make that you know, just sticking to to text but rather make you know giving life to the text and ask them not to give me that that ability. And that's why we're having this very necessary discussion here. considered as part of the book that we study.
So why is it that now we can even have Muslims question? Oh, may Allah Allah you all they say, if I pass when it doesn't make sense that I was washing my hands and rinse my mouth, and miss my nose and wipe my head and wash my feet? Right? Does it make sense that I passed when then, you know, if it was said that you need to, you know, wash your private possibly Allah subhanho wa Taala on a Yo, this would make more sense, right? This is this is the narrative. This is the reality brothers and sisters. This is what the youth are speaking about. Now, how does it get to this? How does it get to this one prior? It was something you never ever question. It's something that you naturally
accepted. And it wasn't even something that you felt as odd. What Why? It wasn't something that you felt as odd. And all of a sudden, you find it odd. And you and I need to also, you know, remember I told you we need to have those thinking days. One of the things we need to think in those days is how in tune? Are we with our fitter or how in tune is is our fitrah actually, we need to have those days where we sit, we sit down and ask ourselves that you know other matters of religion that's panela we never used to question and now we're starting to question used to make total sense and all of a sudden doesn't make sense. I'm the same person
The revelation is the same, nobody came to change it. The words of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam are his words, the words in the Quran are this is the same. I'm the same person in terms of my physical appearance and physical presence. But some, you know, the fact that somebody all of a sudden has, has, as has taken a tip, in terms of my understanding of it definitely shows that something has happened. There's something something has changed with me. And a lot of the time we don't put that change down to our fitter. sociopath attacks the fitrah. When he pollutes the fitrah, we start questioning the unquestionable when the fitrah has become polluted, something which was
wrong, and nobody would debate it being wrong becomes totally right. Right. And this is it. We live in an age, my dear brothers and sisters, where you are wrong when you actually write, and nobody knows anymore, what's right from wrong. This is the reality of the age that we live in. And feel free to throw comments in the chat box. If you feel me and feel these statements that I'm speaking about here. And if you have, you know, your own
thoughts about this, this is a reality. This is the age we live in. Right. Yesterday marriages, which which governments would would would consider illegal, right, considered illegal, you'd be fine, you may be jailed, because of a particular style of marriage. Today's totally acceptable. totally acceptable. And
I mean, it's not as if the the,
the realities of of those once upon a time totally unacceptable. marriages have changed, it's still the same. It's still the same. So how come all of a sudden the unquestionable became questionable, and then the questionable became not questionable. Right? Because when when certain things become legal now, you can't even question it. And if you question it, now, society has reached a stage where they classify you, the classified, right, you're a backward person, you living in the cave age, living in this age, living in this age, time has gone on, and so on and so forth. And don't get me wrong, brothers and sisters, I'm not disputing
the judiciary as ability to cater for every time span. But I am saying that in life, this tarpit and this era, there's the established matches, that will never change. And this is the era that those matches that will change depending on demographic and geography, the demographics and, and geography, right, we have thought within
the scholars of Sorrell, have highlighted this and stated the so it's not that if a Muslim says something or if somebody holds steadfast on to something which the Sharia has cited as
the constants that you and I should be seen as backwards. No, this this is the reality, right? And the reality is, though, abita, motomura, these concepts that are open to change and the established matters that are not the constant matters, this exists in every law, and every place and every norm. It's not something specific to Islamic law. Right. So this is when the fitrah changes, we find these changes happening now. shavon, Wu shavon will attack the fitrah, even though it takes longer to change the Fatah but Japan will affect us using our fitrah as a point of attack. Why? Because even though it takes long, it might take 100 years, it might take 200 years for Japan, to shift the
fitrah he will pursue it Why? Because once done is very difficult to change, it's very difficult for someone to change it.
Right. And that's why I said Chapin is a specialist in deception. And he's very patient. You know, something we patients we need to learn. We don't learn anything from Japan. But Japan is patient. He asked a lot of Allah Mubarak, he asked a lot to keep him alive.
He's very patient. So it will take him 100 200 years to change the fitrah. But he will pursue that. Right, as opposed to for example, changing revelation, changing revelation is easier. It's easier in that it happens quicker. You don't have to wait 100 years to convince someone to change revelation. But for sure upon that is not good usage of resources. And remember last week, we spoke about being strategic people right shade upon
you know, I was speaking to the team earlier and I was speaking to them about this concept in it called roas. In, in entrepreneurship and more specifically, in more specifically in terms of the financial health of a company right.
They call it roas
which is return on capital employed return on capital employed, right shavon is a professional on this. So Pamela Chapin
is a professional on this. Right? He's not going to try and change revelation waste his time trying to change the revelation. No. Why? Because with regards to Revelation, he knows that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said with regards to this oma that Allah subhanho wa Taala will send every 100 years a magette did a reviver right, someone who will
who will come and return matters to that which they supposed to be upon someone who will come and speak out a message that conforms to the natural disposition, even though everyone is speaking something else. So this is not conducive for shavon to spend years changing something that will that you know,
that will not last because Allah will send someone to reverse the work of shaper. So with regards to Revelation, Allah has protected it. And Allah has promised to protect it. Just bear with brother he Sham ice is having some internet difficulties popping in and out of class, for those who are writing messages to him in the chatbox inshallah he will be with us shortly be delighted. But coming back to the point, my dear brothers and sisters, that you know, Shabbat is not going to invest resources in that which will be reversed. Rather, he spends a longer time investing his resources in that which will barely be reversed. And to be honest, once the fitrah changes, then the people themselves will
attempt to change revelation. So the end result with regards to the revelation will also happen for SharePoint, although they won't be able to do that with the Quran. And we've seen how well the student is protected and the protection of the Sunnah is part of the promise of Allah to protect the Quran, because the meanings of the Quran are in the son of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Right. So this will never be able to happen. But sadly, we see people today try to change the Quran not physically, but through meaning they try and say no, this ayah doesn't mean this, it means that
right? And then they come with
a warped sort of type of issue. Right, a warped sort of warped principles that they build the arguments upon. And they convince the lay person or the person without the knowledge, because they come with structure to their discussion. And they say look based on this based on that. And based on these factors, we see that this I really didn't mean that rather it meant this. So you can't change the wordings of the Quran. But now you've changed people's perception of
what those words mean in the Quran. Allah Stan, Allah Cooley had brothers and sisters, this is I wanted you to take time answering the question, because it's a very good question. It's a very good question, especially in this day and age. You know, we're brothers and sisters. practicing Islam is like is like holding, burning coal. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the time will come when practicing Islam will be like, like holding burning coal. It's difficult. It's difficult. You know, if you be modest, you are classified as a backward person, when modesty really is from the core elements of the veteran, believe it or not, modesty is from the core elements of the fitrah.
when you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sending his messages to the different kings, to the different rulers and the different leaders and the non Muslims were trying to counter act, you know, the proposal and counteract the dour and they stood in front of these
you know, these non Muslim heads. In one incident in this era, the leader asked these people from the parish that Who is this person and what does he command you to and they themselves testify that he commands us to worship on a line to be people of modesty. Right, people of FF, people of purity, and people of modesty. This is what
Muslim came with to keep the fitrah intact. So from the elements
of the fitrah is modesty. And when modesty is attacked, that's a clear sign that the fitrah has changed. This is a clear sign that fitrah has has been changed because the directive of the fitrah and the natural disposition is to encourage modesty is to encourage human beings to cover and test the value of this is in the in our father Adam and he said him and our mother Hawaii has said a testimony of this is in that because when they ate from the tree that Allah forbade them from what happened. Right We all know the story. Right? They became exposed and what was the first thing they did Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us and so to the IRA for example, right? They they started
grabbing from the leaves of the trees of Jenna and started covering themselves.
In covering themselves, right? And when we ponder over the story, brothers and sisters, we learned that, you know, showing yourself more really is a net result of being sinful.
Allah knows best, but when the sin was committed exposure happened. So love for exposure, Allah knows best. Right?
Can allude to a person having this love to be sinful. Because love for obedience and obedience which nurtures the natural disposition by default, will nurture a love to be covered, because it's from human nature to cover, as was the case with Adam alayhis salaam and however, it has Salah right and Allah tells us in the in the Quran that don't let your pond put you in in a position where he exposes you,
n zero and Houma labasa home illyria home so it might
be looming later on in Nigeria. Allah Allah Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in his book and sort of an era, for example, about shapefile and how he caused human kind to become exposed and become naked. Right? And Allah subhanho wa Taala says don't allow yourself to fall prey to this. don't expose your natural disposition to him. Don't let your fitrah become polluted by him. Right where he he gives you he he makes you hate modesty and makes you love exposure because loving exposure is loving sins and being sinful and loving modesty is loving obedience. That's the reality. So don't let SharePoint pollute you. Don't let SharePoint expose you. And as Allah says in the
Hurrah community, he sees you who are Kabila who him and his people care about and his people with hate letter on the home once you see them not in the agenda shopping indeed we have made the sharp in the devil's a breeze and his group. Olia help us and assistance. For those who disbelief. Allah May Allah protect us. So anyway, I hope I've shed some light on this question and Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah knows best if you have any questions, brothers and sisters about this concept of natural disposition and some of the insights that we have shared inshallah we can discuss them during the q&a at the end of the session. So last week, we discussed this issue of nature versus
nature and hamdulillah is one of the last things that
we discussed Alhamdulillah. Last week, also, we said we're just going to have our travels through some of the elements pertaining to the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. I know some people have said that we're going to go through the whole Sierra, no, we we can't do that brothers and sisters, because that is a serious topic in and of itself, but just some elements specific to the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
For many reasons, one of them is because it will pay him Rahmatullah here, Allah Himself just travels through the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And number two, the more we learn about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the more we love him, and the more we love him, the more able and ready we are to follow him. And the reality of this book is he just shares guidance on every aspect of the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. So if we ready to follow Him, we'll be ready to accept
the many matters of guidance that abracadabra to la de la has cited in, in all honesty, the summarized version that you have in front of you, actually skips many or several parts from the original writings of him. So, obviously, we read
the second part, which is talking about, you know, the obligation of knowing the messenger and state after that, Mr. Muhammad, Abdul Wahab Rahmatullahi it he goes on to mention the prophets guidance with regards to Voodoo or ablution.
But if you go to the original Book of Abraham into law, he does mention many other facts. Before that, from them, he mentions this run through that I've told you about through the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. After that, he actually goes through a quick run through some of the adapt and etiquettes etiquettes in the life of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, like, how he dressed, what he ate, what he liked, what he disliked, how was he with those matters, that he he disliked, how was he as a husband and so on and so forth. So, he he does go through those sets and adapt you know, the, the mannerisms, the morals, the the the etiquettes
before it will refer to La La then goes into the main chapters of his writing, which is the guidance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam with the many aspects of, of worship, so inshallah, to be true to his writings
We are treading a similar path and Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah knows best brothers and sisters, as we summarized quickly last week, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was an orphan before he was born and then he was an orphan again after he was born with the passing away of his mother and his mother passed away at the age of six years of age, and
there is no difference of opinion as we said that his mother Amina, passed away between Makkah and Medina in a place known as a boy, a boy, we still having technical issues with his chairman and that's why the board is not being updated, but I pray that you will taking your own notes as well and as always, inshallah, you will get
a summary of the class
after the session, and each of the recordings will be made available as well. So there's no difference of opinion that she passed away between McCann Medina and we were discussing our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his allegiance to Medina, even before he migrated to Medina that they were they were elements in his history associated with Medina after his mother passed away. His grandfather, Abdul muttalib, took him into his care and also the loss of a loved one. He was lm
was looked after by his grandfather and his grandfather loved him a lot. And, as I shared with you last week, when he was born of the mechanic was the one who named him Mohammed and held him up at the Kaaba. And he said, I'm naming him Mohammed the president because
with the intention of him being praised, Subhan Allah, right. So this is a last plan in motion, a lot plan in motion that ally inspired the grandfather to name him, Muhammad and we also said that it wasn't a common name at that time, something like today Mashallah, it wasn't a common name at that time. So there was no one who could run into a claim to,
to Prophethood and even the few people who are named Mohammed at that time, then Allah subhanho, wa Taala, protected Prophethood and revelation from being polluted by them ever claiming,
you know, affiliation to prophecy and revelation and Prophethood. So Allah subhanho wa Taala protected anyone with the name the few people who had the name from actually laying claim to profit when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was eight obviously, his grandfather passed away the sort of law sort of law I think he was selling was taken into the care of a Bhutanese, one of the many uncles of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Abu Talib, he was a wise man.
He was a man who didn't have many of the evil traits of the parish, and a great supporter of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, as we all know, and he was not rich and he had a big family. But he was good to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and that is why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took it out of the allaahu and into his care after it robiola and married Khadija rhodiola and because now Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was standing on his feet, he had a home, he was married, and he wanted to reciprocate the good that he received from his ankles. So he offered to take care of early rhodiola Whoa, and this is what he did. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam teaching us the good qualities of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam even before he became a prophet, right, he had these good qualities. He had these good qualities. And he was thoughtful, and he was not selfish. And he was selfless. So he wanted to help the home of Abu Talib. So he took one of his children his younger one. And it was Alice decreed that it grew up in the home of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. May Allah again, that's what the prophets of Allah Allahu wa sallam and his companions in general. I mean, and also just a point to note from this brothers and sisters, you know, the fact that
Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam could bring it into his home, even though he's married to her deja and Khadija has no relationship too early. This teaches us that,
you know, that marriage should be an institution of responsibility and not just rights. And again, I'm just touching on this because, you know, almost every day Subhanallah almost every day, I have sisters writing in and brothers calling in related to marriage problems, marriage problems, you know, and Subhanallah it's it's it's sad to see
the rate of unhappy marriages today. And I'm not just talking about in this in the Indian subcontinent or those of Indian sub continent, or region, but even in the Arab world, in the Muslim world in general. It's sad to see that we have
this rate, this rate of sadness in marriages, when
We have Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was our teacher, right? And guide and leader, and he was the best husband. Right So, the fact that it was not related to her deja robiola
wasn't an issue, it wasn't an issue when he brought it into his home. Today probably wouldn't be an issue. Allah knows best right? So he Sham Could you just correct it on the whiteboard? It's Khadija not Fatima
Baraka Luffy So, today this would probably be a be an issue if her husband, you know, wants to bring his his, his nephew to live in definitely. In you know, our home or in his home despite the initial Allah knows best. I'm not, you know, all with sincere respect to our system. I I don't want to be steal your mind yet because that's being oppressive. Was boo matthewman, am I right? oppression is a darkness on the doorstep. I don't mean to oppress anyone, we have many of the best sisters on the face of this earth as part of the Muslim Omani line and would happily support the husband in doing so well in line. But, you know, what I'm saying is just being specific to this example how Allah
brought allegan it was never needed a long discussion. It never needed, you know, a debate never needed a run through, you know, the life of the husband and the wife and and who did more for the other and who has assets and who has liabilities and supanova. This is today how some marriages work. It works upon this platform, whereby, you know, the wife will say what I was good to you so many times and you you in debt, or the husband will say, Well, I was good to you so many times that you in debt you owe me and because you owe me now i i you have to allow me to do this. Now my dear brothers and sisters, you know, marriage, as Allah says it's, it's built upon more than Russia. It's
built upon love. And it's built upon Mercy is built upon, you know, balance sheets, my dear brothers and sisters or as the chairman is written here as cocottes. Right. It's not built upon this, it's built upon love and mercy is built upon responsibility. You only look at the rights when the when the marriage is on the verge of destruction.
But you don't live upon rights when when you know, when when your marriage is fluid and happy. You live upon responsibility. And in fact, the marriage cannot be fluid and happy except when both parties live upon responsibility. That, you know, even though it might have been Heidegger's right, to, you know,
to to show her unhappiness if she did have unhappiness.
For this decision that was Rasul Allah Allah He was made, it was her responsibility not to write. And in Chava, she it wasn't a case that she was unhappy. She was happy because she was an amazing person. And we'll see this when we come to the wives of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Later, she was an amazing person, but let's hypothetically say, even if she had an objection, and it was her right to it was a responsibility not. And nowhere in the books of Sierra does it ever state that she objected to this. in the same breath. The books of Sierra speak about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he married Khadija, right? She had a child called hint as a because we were
mentioned in albida. And
historians, they mentioned that she had a child called hint and they say that was Rasul Allahu alayhi wa sallam was to hint as a father would be to a child, he never behaved with hint as if this is not my child, you know. So, I will be good to the child, but there is a certain limit No, he was so good to the child better than as some of the story and say better than how a father would be to a child generally Subhan Allah, you know, and then obviously, his Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam is the best of the best he was that was responsibility, right? It was responsibility responsibility is what makes you go the distance My dear brothers and sisters. So take this into
consideration as we break for this particular break. So we at this particular point here, where we discuss in Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with early in his home looking after Ali out of responsibility when you lay a hand and in reciprocating the good that
it is father Abu Talib did with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he took Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam under his wing and and his care and I mean you can you can mature the discussion in your minds and your hearts brothers and sisters because you know the history and in detail and you know, how about body supported Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and and this is how it is, you know, this is how it is when you when when, when you meant hearts, this is how it is when you touch hearts, and we need to be people who touch hearts more often. You know, perhaps write that in gold and tweet it we need to become people that touch hearts more often and Allah subhanho
wa Taala knows best let's take a break till
9:55am maccha time and inshallah I will see you after the break was hola hola senemo Baraka Elena Vina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi adjumani Bismillah R Rahman Rahim hamdulillah salat wa salam ala rasulillah who Allah Allah He was happy woman wa salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Welcome everybody to part two, and I pray you had a restful break full of blessings. I mean me. So we stopped at the point with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being taken care of by his uncle, abou, polyp, boo, polyp. And when De Soto muscle a lover and he will sell them was 12 years old. And in some history books, it says nine years old
Abu Talib decided to travel with him
on a journey for the purposes of trade. And on this particular journey, the Met a Christian monk by the name of behera. And this Christian monk recognized the signs of prophethood in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and advised a boot party in a boot polyp or advise the boot party against continuing the journey because
the Christian mother knew that the Jews might cause harm, or you know, most likely will cause harm to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam especially since
you know, the awaited prophet will not be from
their heritage. So, Abu Talib continued the journey, but is he actually sent Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam back obviously Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a young boy was a young boy. In some narrations. It actually states that
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent back with Bella with Bella.
And this view, this actually this narration is incident nativity scene and to me the end, the narration is actually considered acceptable and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best because its duration definitely has
acceptable narrators in it. However, bluepay Rahmatullah la these books are mad. he disagrees with this particular point. And he says it's not plausible to think that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or that age was sent back with with billon because most likely, Billund wasn't even part of the scene at this particular part of the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and Allah knows best but this is something that will come Rahmatullahi Ali has has stated then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam traversed a Nether journey and that when he that's when he was around the age of 25, he went to share, right, the Levant region.
He went to to to share and obviously for purposes of trade, and this was for Khadija robiola one, because he worked for her robiola and had Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had other jobs like he used to hurt sheep as well. Right? He was a shepherd Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, Mendel Sula sort of level and he was Adam said all the prophets were shepherds.
And they even said, What about you? And he said, even myself, the companions asked about him Salalah alayhi wasallam. And so Pamela, the Anima discussed this point, you know, of being a shepherd, and it says it actually prepares you for Prophethood. Because sheep have
qualities, or they have similarities to human beings. It's not the same when you for example, you know, you heard camels for example, right.
But all cows, for example, but it is the case with sheep. because firstly, sheep, like to be communal, they like to be together, and they take confidence and strength by being together. And that's why you see them grazing together. You see them grazing together. And when one of them becomes lost, it's difficult for them to find their way back, they require a guide, and that's the job of the shepherd. Right? And, you know, even the patience levels, with sheep and so on and so forth. This, this, these similarities, that when you spend time with them, it's very therapeutic. And you as a human being, you develop as well, you develop as well, because you must be patient.
And, you know, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had this as a job. And that's why it's important brothers and sisters that you and I, you know, we always look at financial stability. And we look at people who are skilled, and people who are able to, you know,
have that vision to be financially stable. And especially, you know, those running organizations, it shouldn't be that, you know, we run the organization in a manner that we always dependent on fundraisers, it shouldn't be the as the fundraisers need to happen, it's part and parcel of, of life, especially in the age that we are in. But your organization should not be on dependent on it, there should be a vision within the organization to make the organization
self sufficient, and self reliable, after Allah subhanho wa Taala, of course, so that vision has to be there.
And it's part of good leadership, to enable,
you know, this function coming into play either by creating a work, which needs leadership, and it's a means of making the organization stable, or by creating business projects, right? That
which can also be placed under the concept where you create a business concept and you, you, you, you strike that business as work for this, you make it for the sake of Allah that all of its its fruits,
goes into the devil, for example, right? So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi. wasallam taught us this before prophet and he also taught us after prophet because he taught us that the ABLE Muslim is more beloved to Allah than the less able one or the more able one is more beloved to Allah than the less able one. And he taught us about, you know, the importance of not being people that have the hands out to people. And he warned us against this concept of begging especially with no need.
So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a shepherd and this was part of his his his work ethics growing up or his work descriptions. And later on, he also became a tradesman and he traded on behalf of Khadija, Allahu Allah and he did it. Well, so he went to shell at the age of 25. And he went to this place which was considered to be situated on the south east of Damascus, known as Basra. So this is another Basra on the south east of Damascus and then he, he returned and after his return he married Khadija been hoisted, robiola, who had this affluent female who also enjoyed a noble lineage and a female who was respected by the operation Look how Allah subhanho wa Taala was
putting everything into place. I mean, look at the plan of Allah. Right there are Sorolla Salam O Allah wa Salaam is 25 according to
a view, right? In some views it sisters, so what you have Allah who telethon center that he married, that was when he was 30. And some of you say that he was
21. Right. And with her age being 40, some of us have at 45. And as I told you last week, there's a I think I did that there's another view which is considered strong by some of the scholars or plausible, at least by some of the scholars, although it's not famous that she was only 28 years of age and Allah knows best. So as you can see, I mean, in terms of the historians, there's there's we won't we won't take conflicting
arguments or not even arguments but conflicting statements, we'd say, there's a plethora of statements or different statements. And this is not strange, because as I said, you know, the time before wasn't like the time today, it wasn't a case whereby there were birth certificates and marriage certificates, and so on and so forth. These are approximate, these are approximate and by default, if you differ in terms of the age of marriage, one of the parties that you're going to differ in terms of the age of marriage of the other party. So with regards to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Just to quickly summarize again, some say that he was 25 Some say that he was 30.
Some say that he was 21 something Khadija was 40. Some say she was 4545 is a sorry, she was 40 not 45. Please forgive me that's a slip of the tongue. Some say she was 40. And some other views. state that she's she was 28. Obviously, the famous view is that she was 40 you can delete the 45 was a slip of the tongue.
Some say she was 40. And there is another view that is considered plausible but not so famous that she was 28. And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. So he married someone affluent. And again, just take your attention to the you know, you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala being in charge of the situation that this is what a lot chose for him. So Allahu alayhi wa sallam before he became a prophet. So after he became a prophet, even then, no one could attack him. Nobody could attack his verticity no one could attack his family. Right? This is the reality no one attacked Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family even before he became a prophet, right. So his credibility
was intact through and through what
through and through.
Right, they couldn't attack him via his children. They couldn't attack him via his parents. They couldn't attack him via his his wife before he became a prophet. They couldn't attack him with regards to his wives after he became a prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam his, his credibility was solid, and this was from the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala, with his messenger, protecting revelation to come. And a lot of the time we look at Revelation and its protection, you know, for example, during the life of the prophet or after the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. But in reality, the robust nature of protection of Revelation and the legacy of the final
prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was far in place and in motion even before the birth of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because we discussed the death of his father before he was even born. salallahu alayhi wasallam and all this was in play, to protect the final revelation. What the hell have done Allah subhanho wa Taala is upon all April and Allah subhanho wa Taala is all wise then with regards to Khadija the Allahu Allah, He loved her dearly. She was a great support, she had great maturity and she was the first Muslim in normally we say
she was the first female Muslim but she was the first Muslim. So Pamela, you know and and, and and this point alone should be that point that stands in the face of all those that say Islam really doesn't give a podium and platform to females and Islam sort of sets them back. No, Islam is a religion of equity and put everything in its place. It puts everything in its place with regards to us and Allah subhanho wa Taala we are put on an equal footing, every male and every female has the chance to earn from a glass of water. Right? And this is true, this is true, you know.
And that's what Allah subhanho wa Taala nombre de la Habiba. kumala don't know, start desiring the benefits that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given to one gender over the other. Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed everything upon the platform of true justice, a platform of true justice, you know, that even a female she's not commanded to go to the gym or to observe the Salah. But in a you know, even though that's not the case, and a great blessing has been placed upon the men who observe it in JAMA, we find the pseudo la sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying but her Salah in her home is better Subhan Allah is better, is better. Right? So,
you know, in terms of, of human beings, irrespective of gender with Allah subhanho wa Taala we all up on equal footing. We all have the ability to build the grand gender that we aspire. It's not that it's you know, Islam is the case that a female has a particular agenda that she aspires to build. But, you know,
Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed the laws in such a way that she's prevented from being so we'll be able to Bill Absolutely not. Absolutely not. And that's where there's no credence, no credibility to those who throw this false accusation against Islam. Now, in terms of us with Allah, we appointed equal footing. Each and every one of us has the ability to build the gender we aspire, and indeed will enter gender with the mercy of Allah May Allah shower His mercy upon us. But yes, with regards to physical matters, then, because Islam is built upon true justice, it's put everything in its place that has not made a female a male, nor has it made a male a female otherwise. What's the point
of of even having the term male and having the term female why not just call them both men or call them both female right or wrong brothers or sisters, you know, and as Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned in his book, we're layli either yo Sha one, either one masala Kazakh one in this area.
La vaca. This is this is a clear revelation from Allah when Allah subhanho wa Taala takes an oath by different parts of his creation because he created it to Allah and Allah Rosa will create our attention to the differences in the creation. well lately the yaksha law talks about the night
when it thickens and darkens when he is at the Jelani talks about the day when it when it thickens in terms of brightness and brightens. And is the day which is thick in in brightness and brightens and brightness the same as the night that is taken in in its darkness. Absolutely not. It's different. Absolutely not. And that's why we call the day day and we call the nightlight. Allahu Akbar. So Allah subhanho wa Taala in the surah draws our attention to differences. And then he says, wallmark Allah
and Allah subhanho wa Taala
makes manifest and apparent. Allah subhanho wa Taala is creation of humankind existing as two genders that are and that there's a difference here as well. Just like the data
is different to the night and we have day and night. a maid is different to female though we have male and female. And then Allah says unnecessary accumulation after taking this out of us is indeed, your salary.
Your your way to Allah and your efforts and your mannerisms are many, many and different law cover many different, right? Not the same, not the same. So it's from,
you know from from the natural matters is from the natural matters, that we will have differences in terms of how we conduct our lives and go about our lives and endeavor. Allah subhanho wa Taala and why because naturally we are different people, we are male and female.
And not just by name by physical makeup as well. Not so brothers and sisters. Absolutely, absolutely. So,
this is this is what you call justice of hamdulillah. Right. And even in worship, Allah subhanho wa Taala has given certain acts of has made certain acts of worship specific, right, or given certain readings which has specific agenda specific like for example, females, they shouldn't fast the month of Ramadan if they want their periods, and they shouldn't pray if they own their periods, for example, is a mercy from Allah. Because they different to males, males don't experience menses.
And because of that difference, it's it's from being unjust to expect the male to have the same ruling as the main in this particular matter when the physical makeup is different. And the physical makeup has implications. Right, that are gender specific. Allahu Akbar. So this is really common sense really, and I pray you are following and the message has come across. In any case, so the last one, Allahu Allah He was married this amazing female, and she was a great support to him. When he became a prophet and she was the first Muslim she didn't question him. In fact, she calmed him. She told him words that should be written in gold, after he saw the the angel,
the ark Angel jabril Allah, his Salah, after Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw this mighty creation of Allah. Right, something from the supernatural. Of course, as a human being, he became afraid and he ran home to her. No, she had nothing but goodness to say to him, she didn't call him mad and call him that, you know, are you okay? Are you hallucinating? Or,
you know, perhaps what you and I might might say today that no, you know, are you okay? Are you seeing things you need to see a doctor? Oh, she she was supportive of her husband, and how supportive and told him words that should be rooted in gold that brought about peace and calm. And then she even sought the solution for him sallallahu alayhi wasallam and took him to her uncle Lisa, she said I have an uncle, that perhaps will be able to assist us in this matter. Because he's well versed with the scripture of previous prophets. Let's go see him. And this is what a wonderful team member does, you know, just bringing back the lesson bringing alive the text, you know, wonderful
team member is that team member that doesn't bring you problems, they bring you solutions, you know, they don't bring you the problem, they bring you calm amidst the storm, and the solution that will help you get out of the store. This was a digital demo and you know, we should have a course leadership skills from the life of Khadija of the Allahu Allahu Akbar. Right.
Because, you know, we we celebrate all the amazing Muslims irrespective of agenda 111. So brothers and sisters,
she was his first wife and with her, the world's Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was married to her. He never married any other female and also lots of Allahu Allahu wa sallam when he lost her. He was extremely affected. It was a tough year for him. And in that same year, he lost a battalion he lost the boot polyp, another great supporter, but when he lost Khadija rhodiola and he was extremely hurt and, and Allah subhanho wa Taala gave all the children of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam to him via deja rhodiola. And this is another element you know, that makes us understand how amazing she was as a female that Allah chose her. And also,
or let me just qualify that all his children except Ibrahim, except his son Ibrahim, but all his children except Ibrahim will given him via a DJ of the Allahu Allah also she was the female that Allah subhanho wa Taala sent salams to via jabril le Salah. Imagine that. Imagine that. You will le Salam comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and tells him and this is in the sun that tells him that your wife is going to enter upon you just now Heidegger is going to enter upon you just now. And when she does let her know that Allah has passed her Salah
Law law just saying that makes my head stand law he just it makes your head stand imagine any you know if a human being of status sends a solemn we feel we feel special we feel remembered that Subhanallah somebody visits our land from farther away and he says you know this this famous person he passes you Salah doesn't it make your day My dear brothers and sisters, it really really makes your day makes you weak makes your month perhaps makes your life right and here the Lord of the worlds is sending Salah. Imagine, you know, how can we imagine what the loved one had felt? when she heard this from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that by the way, Allah passes you celeb
lavaca We almost had a heart attack enters into gender. I mean, I mean, so this was Khadija robiola and, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would remember her dearly after she passed away, even after he married his other wives. In fact, I Chateau de La Hoya is famously known for for telling Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Why do you keep remembering her? You know, he remembered so much that even when the Friends of Khadija della Juana would visit Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would remember her
and would remember her from, you know,
he would he would remember his wife, and Khadija and how would would say that? Why do you remember she was she was an old lady.
You know, some heinonline this is human nature, especially with the females, right? They overprotective of their husbands really like this, oh, Allah subhanho wa Taala has made the fitrah has made the factor. And even with with with non Muslims, right, even though they they've stopped respecting the institution of marriage, and choose to live the life outside of the scope of marriage as boyfriend and girlfriend, they actually, you know, become extremely upset or depressed if the husband or if the husband cheats, for example, as they quote unquote, say,
in this speech, and the husband two will become very accepted, upset if the wife cheats, and it's a means of them separating. In fact, we have even laws, physical laws, where the courts would step in and distribute the wealth
in a way that is suitable or conducive to the one who was honest in the relationship. Right. And the court would take into consideration dishonesty from you know, the party that was dishonest. So, even legal laws, we go into,
you know, laws of countries, right civil law, right.
This laws that,
that guide a judge in his ruling, and the guidance is offered towards the one who was honest, right. So this is human nature, this is human nature, where, you know, we
consider what is hours hours, and that emotional investment then comes into play, and we become pretty over protective, right, this is human nature. So here he is telling the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being over protective of a husband and even knowing that he's got other wives, that now you remember, you're the one that's passed away. And Allah gave you something better, because we don't have the law and how was the only version that was sort of lasala who it was it
was much older. So and she was married prior. So we see here that she's saying that oh prophet of Allah Until when are you going to remember she was old and Allah gave you somebody better, and also the loss of the lover and he was sort of said to her by Allah know, Allah didn't give it to somebody better. And he goes on to mention how she believed in him when no one did and supported him when no one did and so on and so forth. How amazing is that? When a husband can speak about his wife so beautifully, even after she passes away, will not make our wives similar to Heidi God Allah.
Allah subhanho wa Taala guide our husbands to become diligent husbands as well as me. So
after he married Khadija robiola, and then we see revelation coming to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was 40 years of age, and in terms of 40 years of age, then this was a norm with regards to Allah giving Prophethood to the prophets and Allah subhanho wa Taala describes 14 the Quran as being
the the point of complete maturity in terms of physical maturity and mental maturity. So it's the perfect way or the perfect time
to take on the responsibility. There's enough wisdom there's enough maturity and wisdom is needed in the day our wisdom is needed in the hour, and definitely you know, you'll make less mistakes in the hour after 40 than you will make before 40 Allah knows best but this seems like a passion
And something that we can consider established. So Allah gave his messenger Prophethood at 40. And even in terms of, you know, discussions nowadays and modern day research,
it actually says that those habits which you can't get rid of before 40, there'll be stuck with you for the rest of your life. Right? So what you are upon, you know, before 40, you will definitely be a pilot and perhaps in a bigger way after 40 right, so this is what trends have shown, and we know today, as part of research is the study of trends. So transactions, so you know,
and also chains have shown that after 40, then it's a sort of downhill kind of thing. Right? In terms of your mental strength, your physical strength, you become weaker shape and foshay. Slowly but surely, as you start reaching the end of your life, and this Allah subhanho wa Taala has made us this is how Allah subhanho wa Taala has made us but
I warn you against thinking that after you 40, then you are unable, no, you are able and take pride in you being able from the fact that what sort of loss of Allah for Allah, He will celebrate became a prophet at the age of 40.
Right. And I have seen Personally, my own teachers in the 80s, who are upon amazing mental health, you know, and they actually teach us from the top of the head. And they mentioned specifics as if they're a young person with photographic memories. I personally have had teachers
with disabilities, and and have taken comfort in that old age doesn't make you see now, or doesn't have to be the reason why you see now or suffer dementia or any of these mental difficulties that, quote unquote, come about with the result of age, right, if you look after your mind through good reading and look after your health through being fit, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you an able mind in your old age, probably a mind more able than what used to be before I actually had a teacher teach me Islamic inheritance, and some of the most intricate
you know, rulings in Islamic inheritance, and mathematic mathematical functions and, and solve things in Islamic inheritance from the top of his head. So forget about him knowing you know, just text we're talking about a built in calculator and he was almost eight years of age. He was almost eight years of age, my dear brothers and sisters, but he's working out math, complex math,
you know, functions in his mind, some kind of law that would take you time to do even if you use the calculator, Allahu Akbar, and it was almost eight. So take pride in this and take guidance in this that you know even in your old age, it's not too late to memorize the Quran. It's not too late to learn the Quran. It's not too late to learn the Arabic language that will help you understand the Quran. Take pride from this, my dear brothers and sisters and don't let a police and sharepad make you feel otherwise. So revelation came to him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now when did this revelation come?
There's a view that this revelation came to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the month of Ramadan. Right. And more specifically on the night of power because Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Shahada, Rama Vonda, Lady Angela Hill Quran and Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Salah who feel a little panda.
So he became a prophet in Ramadan. Some other scholars say no, he became a prophet in a beer and a one in a beer and a one.
So they say that he became a prophet. In fact, some of them are specific, they say on the eighth day of reveal, oh well over
41 years after
the incident of the elephant 41 years after,
or in the 41st year rather, in the 41st, year after the of the elephant. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was 40. And this is the view of the majority By the way, that he became a prophet in the month of revere a well
in the 41st, year after the of the elephant and these are the view as a shed, which says that he became a prophet in the month of Ramadan. Some scholars join between the two opinions and say that he started seeing dreams that became true because revelation happens in in in several ways we'll come to that just now.
But they say that
one of the days of Revelation is having true dreams. And he started having true dreams and reviewed our which lasted six months as we find it authentic narrations and
reviewed over the six months from Ramadan. So he had true dreams
from revealed oh well and jabril visited him in Ramadan.
So this is what they say.
But just let you know those scholars who say that revelation came to me that revealed Oh well, then they explained the eye of the eye in the Quran where Allah says in the novel a little controversial Ramadan LED on Xena Pharaoh Quran
the I would say is that Allah revealed the Quran in the month of Ramadan.
They say that what Allah means here is that which even at best Robbie Allahumma mentioned in a narration, which is considered a metaphor, which is considered as raised to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, why? Because in this narration, he's talking about the unseen. And he could never speak about the unseen except if you heard it from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. So even though he's saying it, they consider his statement as raised to the Prophet metaphor, as would be termed in the science of Howdy. Right? So even though he's saying it, they say that he's speaking about the unseen and we know that he wouldn't lie. So the fact that he's saying it means he got it
from someone who knew about the unseen, and the only one who knew about the unseen was the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And in that narration, he says that Allah revealed the Quran to in two stages. The first stage was a complete revelation from a low food from the preserve tablet, to
to bait to the first Heaven, to a place known as the house of honor, and beta is the house of honor. So this is what they say that this happened in Ramadan, and this happened on the night of power. So when Allah says shall Ravana levy on Zilla Quran that amount of Ramadan is the month in which we revealed the Quran, it doesn't mean that it came to the prophet in Ramadan. Rather, it means that the Quran was revealed from the preserved tablet to the first heaven to a place known as the house of honor.
in Ramadan, and more specifically on the night of power.
And then from there is the second stage of Revelation, which is revelation coming to the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam over a period of 23 years, piecemeal, we say piecemeal women in stages. So it came to the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam piecemeal, over a period of 23 years, from the house of honor to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam via gibreel Ali Salaam Of course. So they say that
this ayah which says the Quran was revealed in Ramadan doesn't mean that came to him from Allahu Allah, he was in the cave in Ramadan, rather, it came to the house of honor. in Ramadan, the Quran was revealed in one chunk in his totality to the house of honor in Ramadan on the night of power, and then from there, it came to the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam piecemeal, or in stages over 23 years, and Allah knows best but as I said, sometimes join between the narrations and they say that look, or join between the views rather, and say that if we look at our well then we see that it's six months from Ramadan. And we know that His revelation first came to him in the form of true
That lasted six months, and then jabril came to him after that, right and that would entail Julian having come to him in the month of Ramadan with Akira and Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah knows best, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. Now, what are the different types of revelation? The scholars have mentioned, in the books known as pseudo tafsir are the principles of Tafseer they say revelation came to the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam
six ways, and some add a seventh and the seventh is disputed, and we'll discuss that just now. So they say that it came to him in six ways. Firstly, in the form of dreams, or true dreams earlier, Saudi Arabia, a sidecar and it says that he would not see a dream except that it would, you know, he or he would then see it again the same way. He would actually see the dream whilst he was awake, or see, see the real version of the dream. So you'd see a dream and see that dream become a reality. And in the sooner we see being described as as mythical Falak, as Super. So this call is described
as the reality as the reality that he would see a dream and then he would see it in reality. And many times for those who visit those corners who can interpret dreams, they talk about this concept of Falak or Suba, which talks which constitutes dreams coming true, which constitutes dreams coming true. Now, I don't advise that you get all your dreams in
interpreted. That's not what I'm saying, especially bad dreams from the etiquettes of bad dreams is not to get the dream interpreted. The only dreams that you should, you should endeavor to get interpreted if you really feel the need to is good dreams is good dreams, because dreams are to have types you have, you have good dreams, then you have bad dreams. And then you have what they call, you know, human thought, which is a process of your day being played back to you at night when you sleep. And this happens, for many reasons, sometimes stress causes it, you know, exam stress, this can happen, right? How many times have you had an exam, and you wake up at night thinking you're
late for the exam, only to realize it's still night of hamdulillah and this is obviously for those who sleep at night, right? Some people don't sleep the night before the exam.
But I'm sure many of us have experienced this or we have you know, a presentation at work there's some anxiety and and that anxiety plays itself. In our heads and and for those who have studied the science of sleeping, then you've seen you know, REM sleep and n r e m sleep which is
which which talks about random
random activity sort of sleep where your eyes move a bit more and and other sleep which is not so random. And and and you don't get the eye movement. I read this a while ago, the specific points.
I cannot recall at the moment, but but Google it a shala and have read on the soul. This is the type of dream that we have. But it's not a it's a dream because of
some physical elements such as stress, for example. And then true dreams is of two types. We have true dreams. Sorry, good dreams is of two types. those dreams that are good, but don't necessarily come true. But they are dreams which make us happy when we wake up. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us some etiquettes with regards to these type of dreams.
you know, we should not relate the dream to just anybody. It doesn't mean that you saw a good dream that now you should go and put it on Facebook. Right? Especially like today, today we live in an age where martial law. You know,
I sometimes joke with my teams and I say you know, one of the important elements in any function. In any team in any company in any division is something we call our T you real time updates.
real time updates in management we say turns on the lights, it turns on the lights meaning it keeps us current in terms of our endeavors, and we're able to tweak our approaches. And in our This is very important to always, you know, gather data, and to have the the ability to synthesize the data and interpret the data. This gives us real time updates and we're able to tweak ourselves, keep ourselves current and keep ourselves gaining as much as possible from our investment. And as I said, you know, our life in reality is return on
capital employed and in your life in my life. Our capital is our time. Our capital is our wealth. Our capital is our health. Our capital is
you know, our youth. You know our young age, as Rasul Allah alayhi wa sallam said in the Sunday study mom's problems that take advantage of five before five, right? And he tells us to take advantage of our life before our death, this is capital. Life is capital he tells us to take to make use of our health before sickness being healthy is capital, he tells us to make use of our free time before we become busy. You know, free time is capital. He tells us to make use of our wealth before we become impoverished. Right? So wealth is his his capital as well. He tells us to make use of our use of our our of our youthfulness before we become old. So being young is his capital. So what is
our rate on capital employed? How have we used all this? for the betterment of our hereafter? How well have we invested? How well have how mature have we been in our investments? And this is why I tell her when boys and girls that you don't have to do everything, but do it properly. Right? Do it properly, do it properly. Do one thing and do one thing properly. You don't have to do 10 things and do it in an improper way. This is not good return on capital employed. This is not good return on capital employed. You're not using yourself efficiently. We just spoke about Sherpa and how he uses he's got a lifetime to live. And even then, he uses his resources properly, will protect us from he
believes in SharePoint. Right? So what about you and I haven't
Lila, we have the guidance of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Right. So it's important to look after our elements and our entities and look after them. Well, look after them. Well, you know, my father used to always tell me that, you know, one full cup is better than three half cups, even though three half cups gives you one and a half cups of water.
But one full cup is still better. Why? Because it's complete. The other three cups are incomplete, they still have cups, whatever you want to say. The reality is they are half cups, you cannot say, you know, even if you say I have one and a half cups of water you you can't really confidently say that you can only say, in effect, I have one and a half cups of water. But in reality, I have three half cups. Right? But what can you call complete and put on your CV, for example, and benefit from that which is complete? You know, when you go to a company and say I'm halfway studying my, you know, degree, it's not the same as going to a company and saying I've completed it and here's the
certificate if you get what I'm saying. My dear brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows, but this is this is another footnote for your own development in terms of the organizations that you run and even yourselves. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it beneficial. So this was one way of revelation that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would see these dreams. And
we were talking about Facebook and real time updates. This was the discussion that took us into rows. That you know, I joke with the teams that some kind of like today, we live our lives with real time updates, we eating a food at a restaurant, Masha, Allah, the camera comes out. And now you know, we'll even say we took it with this camera and this many pixels, and it's brought up this flavor from the food and this ingredient from the food Mashallah. And then it ends up on Facebook, Masha Allah ate at this restaurant today, and this is what I had for breakfast. And this is what I had for lunch. And this is what I had, you know, for this, and this is what I had for that. And this
is where I am right now make you know, we we offer real time updates, real time updates about our life.
And this is dangerous, but brothers and sisters, right? This is Damon Firstly, it makes it makes other people inactive in some way or form. Because how is someone going to benefit reading about your life.
So if somebody is going to be on Facebook, give them something beneficial to read help your brothers and sisters, right? Wrong, my dear brothers and sisters, right? Help them, help them, don't give them something that's going to further waste their time. You know, you need to be that light, that beacon of guidance, because that's what a Muslim is. And that's where wisdom is, right. So if you know that somebody is going to be out there wasting their time, don't help them waste their time further by giving them something, you know, useless to see. Give them something beneficial to read perhaps through it, guidance will come to them and they'll become better people or better with their
resources. Right? So this is dangerous for this reason. The second reason is the evil eye. We almost kind of who attended protect, right? The evil eye.
Right? You know, a lot of the time we put up things and, and somebody might not necessarily be jealous of us, but they might be amazed by what you've put up. And they forget about Allah in that amazement, and the sharpener have an opportunity to chase that particular process and cause harm to come to you. Because of it will not protect where you know, these freak accidents happen in your life. You know, you get sick in a weird way. Allah protect us, you know, all of a sudden, you start feeling stressed when you never used to be a stressful person, all of a sudden you're home, you know, all of a sudden you end up having regular arguments with your wife or with your husband and
live it never used to be the case. Right? And so Pamela, then she deceives us just to such an extent that we don't even think of Rukia and think of considering evil AI and so on and so forth as as a means of our retrogression currently, right. Until the marriage ends up becoming something no more or you know, our progress ends up becoming something no more. Allah subhanho wa Taala protects so these are reasons why you don't want to be people who are you know, giving this real time updates on Facebook all the time. I'm not saying once in a while you can you shouldn't do it, though. You can once in a while. it's beneficial, but every time is not so beneficial. So now you have a good dream.
Some people end up sticking it up on Facebook, sticking it up on Twitter last night, this is what I jumped. And this is against the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is not to reveal good dreams, except to those people who are trustworthy and wish the best for you. And we learned this from this chapter of use of surah Yusuf because jacobellis salam told Yusuf Alayhi Salam not to release this dream to anybody else. Not to release this dream to his own brothers. Why for Yaki du Lac Akita less they shall protect
against you. Right so this etiquette of not revealing our good dreams and good fortune to everybody is from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In fact, in a hadith with some of the scholars have considered acceptable Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Is there enough power in how he can build men that assist yourselves in the things that you do by keeping it a secret? By keeping it a secret? assist yourself by keeping it a secret. So Pamela, how do we assist ourselves by keeping it a secret? Yeah, Allah by not you know, fronting it, so that inshallah it doesn't become a means for the evil eye to affect you, and as the evil which Allah subhanho wa Taala
has placed with Divine Wisdom.
Right We know that from the articles of faith is to believe that good and bad faith is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right. And and Allah creates evil, with with with Divine Wisdom. Why is all wise as to why it's there and Allah test us with it. But don't be a means to opening the doors for any evil to harm you. May Allah protect us from evil I mean, Allahu medpharm Nelvana Well, what what Riba was Xena was that, as you know, when we had wosu alphason miroir, Amina. I mean, we ask a lot to protect us from all evil, manifest evil and hidden evil, I mean your enemy, but it's their issue. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says, assist yourself, Allah provide Hitman for in nearly
equally the near term it may have to do in some narrations, this is an addition to the narration that for For indeed, every person who has a blessing, there is some other person who is jealous of it.
Right. So coming back to the etiquettes of dreams do not you know, release your good dreams except to those who you trust. So you know the the good dreams are of two types a good dream and the other one is a true dream. Which is a good dream which becomes true.
A good dream which becomes true. And if your good dream becomes true, then that's a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala praise Allah. Thank Allah, because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that nothing remains of prophethood except Mu bashira
except moomba shirat. And when they asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
about the meaning of MOBA shirat.
He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam true dreams,
through dreams, through dreams. So
this is a mercy from Allah. You know, Allah blessed you, and hamdulillah thank Allah subhanho wa Taala, that, that he he gave you this true dream, you know, and it's use it as a means of growing your imagine of law. And many times we have this concept of deja vu, where we actually see something in front of us and we can actually interpret what's going to happen next. before it even happened. It's probably been a case where one day you driving and you're actually looking for a place and you know, you all of a sudden become engulfed by this feeling like you've actually been in this place before. And you took a right turn and a left turn and the place you looking for was on the right for
example, and you do exactly that. And what happens it's exactly how it was. Exactly how you thought Allahu Akbar is it to choose up but I never came here before. How did this happen? Right? This deja vu concept Allah showed it to you in your subconscious in a dream before. Right is a communication from Allah subhanho wa Taala the doors of revelation are closed and Prophethood is shut. But Allah communicates with with the oma Allah can communicate with the oma through through dreams as Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
taught us mailmark others with him in general. And may Allah bless us with good dreams and true dreams. I mean, I mean, you know, one of the ways to have true dreams is to be an honest person. lesson that teaches us that, that those who are the most honest in speech, they're the most honest and true in their dreams. Those who are most honest in their speech that the most honest and true in their dreams, and that's why we should not even joke a lie in our jokes. My dear brothers and sisters, may Allah protect us. We shouldn't lie in our jokes. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said woe to the person who lies even when they joke, right? We should be truthful as much as we can.
Even in our speech in our lecture, sometimes we want to joke to you know, to keep the audience you know, connected, we shouldn't lie in that. We shouldn't lie in it. And it doesn't mean if a particular you know, student of knowledge does it that it that we should adopt it as a norm and say when he does it, we should do it. Now every human being is prone to mistake. Every human being is prone to mistaken and prone to being corrected My dear brothers and sisters. So
try and be as honest and as possible in all your speech.
And remember that a lies a smear of lies the old hearing and Allah hears you. Right? And those who are most, most honest in this speech, they are the most
true in terms of their dreams and May Allah make us you know have the dream that we all desire to have, you know where we see it or sort of lesson Allah for Allah he was telling me now a dream Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed us with those dreams.
So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would see these two dreams. This was one of the ways of Revelation, a second type of
a second manner in which revelation would would reach the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would be,
you know, based upon jabril Allahi Salaam communicating with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whilst he is hidden, so gibreel is hidden and gibreel alayhis salam
with the permission of Allah.
Get, you know, against the inflammation to the south of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam right?
gets the revelation into the self of the of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam becomes knowledgeable about it, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reveals it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reveals it and this is established in the Sunnah as well. We're also de la Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam said in the sci fi fury and who lent me enough so that the testicular is, so this is established in the suit now it's unacceptable howdy in the software, so the muscle Allahu alayhi wa sallam said that indeed jabril Allah, He said Abu produce,
has has sort of blown into me into myself, this knowledge that no soul shall taste death, until that soul has completed all of its sustenance, all of its sustenance, right.
So this is a heady, right in the left center, who the heck destech Miller is.
So he says that jabril has blown into me and made known to me through this process. So Rasulullah hasn't seen up here. But the revelation has become part of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, he knows it all of a sudden, that no social tastes death until
they have completed all of the assessments, they have completed all of this the assessments, the last grain of rice, that you are supposed to eat, you will not pass away before you eat it.
Right? You will not pass away before you eat it.
Right? So this is what he says some Allahu alayhi wa sallam and they should give us great hope my dear brothers and sisters, especially, you know, nowadays, where we skate to donate, for example, we think, you know, if we donate and we won't have money to spend in the sake of Allah, we won't have money. You know, I understand that you will not die until you eat your last sustenance, your last grain of rice, until that's eaten, you will not pass away. Because even if you were to live, how will you survive? There's no there's no such thing as left for you. Right? So whatever you give to Allah,
Allah will give you back. If it means that you know your sustenance is there for you. And this is what yaqeen is, my dear brothers and sisters, when you say have taught could have trust in Allah, put your trust in Allah. Now I'm not saying go and give all your belongings out to charity. Now, but as Allah subhanho wa Taala says with
una Cooney laffel. You know, law says that they asked you about you know what they should spend, then tell them an apple, they should spend that which is access to their requirement access to that which they need, even if they only have $2. But and they're not considered rich because they only have $2, but they only need one. If they only need one then they can spend from the other one that is access to the requirement. Right. So I hope this answers the question my dear brothers and sisters The other way that revelation would come to the sort of loss of Allahu alayhi wa sallam would would be when jabril would come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in the form of a man and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would see him and sometimes the companions would see him as well, as is in the famous hadith of gibreel when he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dress smart with no sign of travel, no sign of dust and he wasn't from Medina and the Sahaba never knew him. And all of a sudden he sat right next to the prophets of Allah already he was Solomon he told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to teach him about Islam, to teach him about
Eman and to teach him about SN and to teach him about the science of the hour. And then when jabril left the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the companions that Do you know what this person is? And they said no. So he said this was jabril and he came to teach you your religion. So you bring would come in the form of Amen.
Another way that revelation would come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this was the most severe way, would be in the form, or in a form similar to the ringing of a bell, to the ringing of a bell. And
some of the companions would say that they would actually see sweat. Four sweat on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is face on a cold day, even though it's a cold day or cold night, they would actually
see sweat appearing, given how difficult this way of receiving revelation was. And in some of the narrations, it actually states that the the the the writing animal of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would kneel down because of the weight of revelation in this particular manner. So this was a fourth way, a fourth way
would be in the form of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam seeing jabril, adding Salah in his original form, and this happened twice,
in or twice in terms of what we know, as Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah, two najem certain measurement is number seven, seven, and I am number 13. So Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us in Surah, an ayah number seven and 13, two times that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so gibreel alayhi salam in his original form, and he was a mighty angel. Indeed we know that he ran to the Allahu Allah after seeing the villa Allah, his Salah, obviously fearful of what he had just seen. So this was another way that he would receive revelation sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Another way that Allahu Allah He will send them who would receive revelation or did receive revelation, as I was called to say, is when he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was taken up to the heavens. during El Mirage, the ascension to the heavens, we have a surah and El Mirage Sri is the Jedi by night from Masood haram to bait mark this and then there was the Mirage which was the ascension to the seventh heavens there Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received revelation he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received revelation such as honor being compulsory and other matters that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him during that night another way that he would receive revelation
and this is the seventh way is in by the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala revealing to him without jabril Allah himself without jabril Allah, his Salah, and obviously, the scholars saying this way Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never saw Allah subhanho wa Taala. So these are the seven ways the seventh way is him receiving revelation whilst without gibreel being a middle, middle being in the process, he would receive he would understand revelation directly from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Some scholars mentioned an eighth way and as I said, this is a disputed way and they say the eighth way is receiving revelation whilst he saw Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the reality is the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam seeing Allah
a matter of difference of opinion even between the pious predecessors before us amongst the Sahaba because we have the hadith of eyeshadow, the Allahu Allah, which is in the Sufi, in which he says that no one has seen a line if anyone says that, they have seen a lot, he has light. And she even said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam never saw Allah And whoever says that he did has light, right?
So this is what she has said about the Allahu Allah.
And obviously, there is another narration from another companion, which states that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So Allah subhanho wa Taala does, between the companions, there was a difference of opinion. But what is more correct and Allah knows best is the narration of Asia of the Allahu and helpful indeed, she would be most knowledgeable of these matters, especially given that she was the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Just coming to some of the questions in the box, it's Ayah number seven, is number seven and ayah number 13. Soraka najem is number seven and I am number 13. In these ayat, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that, or teaches us that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw jabril and he saw him in his natural form twice. So brothers and sisters, sadly, our time has come to an end and then hamdulillah we have managed to complete the seven ways that are sort of last Allahu alayhi wa sallam received revelation. And as I said, this is a discussion big in a science though
As soon as seen, and I've also mentioned to you and eight view which is a matter of difference and we've said the correct view is that
there's only seven because it was sort of us on Allahu alayhi wa sallam never saw Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah knows best with that we come to the end of our sixth session will help you ask Allah to accept it from us. We ask a lot to make it heavy on our skills of good deeds. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless us and to increase our knowledge and I thank brother a sham for Mashallah his skills with the keyboard and Google Mashallah he managed to pull out the ayat and the Hadith
that I have been sharing with you in totality and for those listening to the recording, we have another reason for you to attend the class live Mashallah because you actually get
the notes in this fashion. But perhaps for those who can't attend, then maybe we can help them if we if we can take screenshots of the whiteboard, I believe it was done last week and then what we can do is send it to everybody as well. We can send the screenshots attached along with the summary of the notes and perhaps this will be beneficial or lower level I'll leave this to the provisions team to decide because Mashallah, I have seen that you know, even though the notes are student notes that you've been putting up with Mashallah that the notes have been very decent when in the hill hammered once again, my dear brothers and sisters, the the crux should be what I say in the lesson and in the
recordings, not the notes, there may be mistakes in the notes, Allah knows best, the team is trying their level best to ensure that there's no mistakes there. But if there is any confusion, then please refer to the recording Bismillah to Allah, Allah Helen for your attendance, because I can now head on to the provisions team. Except from us, may Allah bless us And may Allah preserve us in his obedience and bring us together for many more sessions.
Time Is Flying as we started off today saying and this particular part of season one will come to an end around mid May, right around with me, so it's not so long to go My dear brothers and sisters, I think we just have about four lessons left. Please don't forget about the forums before I end, but the Sherm is going to be sending out the topic for discussion.
inshallah. So, you know, please don't be afraid to participate, to be thoughtful to think, you know, I don't want this to be a session where you just come in and hear that which makes you feel good. I rather want it to be a session that allows you to come in and make you think about certain things. The world today needs thinkers, and we need speakers who make us think as well, well, like the world is in need of this.
You know, yes, we are in need of speakers also who make us feel good. But we are more in need of lessons that make us think, as opposed to those lessons that make us feel good, especially in an age where there's just too many things happening and fit and has has become the norm of the day and the norm of the night. And, you know, if we're not going to think them, you know, we're going to end up falling prey to that which is not considered the ideal, and before it's too late, we might be in misguidance Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us so this is my humble message to you or however low and everything corrected is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he is perfect. And any mistakes are
from myself and Siobhan and I seek Allah subhanho wa Taala has forgiven us I love you all for the sake of Allah until lesson seven next week. Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Subhana Allah who will become the supercritical lahoma we'll be having deca, Chateau La Ilaha Illa and the stuffy ruka wanna tubu la
